Organization Description: The Pacific Island Health Officers Association (PIHOA) is a non-profit organization headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, with a field office in Hagåtña, Guam. PIHOA’s mission is to provide, through collective action and decision-making, a credible regional voice for health advocacy in and for the Pacific. PIHOA’s Executive Board is comprised of the ministers/directors/secretaries of health of the six US Affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPIs): American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Guam, the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), and the Republic of Palau. PIHOA’s Secretariat, comprised of executive, administrative, and technical staff works with a number of consultants to provide technical assistance to the USAPI health ministries and departments in the following areas: 1) health workforce development/human resources for health; 2) epidemiology and surveillance; 3) performance improvement; 4) laboratory services; 5) regional health policy and advocacy; 6) health security; and 7) leadership development.

Program Background: One of PIHOA’s key goals is to build the capacity of health ministry staff in the areas of epidemiology, surveillance, and health information systems. To this end and in collaboration with USAPI health leadership, the Pacific Community (SPC), and Fiji National University (FNU), PIHOA developed a field epidemiology training program called Strengthening Health Interventions in the Pacific (SHIP). SHIP is modeled after CDC’s Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP), and has been adapted for the Pacific region. SHIP is accredited by FNU, meaning students earn post-graduate certificates when they complete the program. SHIP is implemented in the USAPIs by PIHOA and in other Pacific countries and territories by SPC.

The SHIP program is comprised of three tiers: • Post-Graduate Certificate in Field Epidemiology (PGCFE) • Post-Graduate Diploma in Applied Epidemiology (PGDAE) • Master’s in Applied Epidemiology (MAE)

Certificate and Diploma courses are comprised of up to five discrete, week-long modules delivered on-site and in-person in the jurisdictions, supplemented by additional online coursework to be completed during and in between modules. Each module is delivered as a combination of classroom-based sessions and structured activities/exercises. SHIP uses a “from work, at work, for work” model where students plan, design and implement selected projects prioritized by their respective workplace supervisors and health leadership utilizing real local data. Since 2015, 141 USAPI health staff have received their PGCFE. Twelve PGCFE graduates are currently pursuing the completion of the PGDAE, and two are ready to commence the MAE track.
