FELTP operates and works closely with various stakeholders towards the fulfilment of its mandate. They include academic institutions, research institutions, government agencies, kenya county governments among others.

The CDC is one of the major operating components of the USA Department of Health and Human Services. It is the lead U.S. agency that works to protect America from health, safety, and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. CDC works 24/7 to protect Americans and save lives around the world by detecting and controlling outbreaks at their source. Also, CDC helps other countries increase their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to health threats on their own.

The CDC’s Division of Global Health Protection (DGHP) explores global health issues through the various program. Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) and Improving Public Health Management for Action (IMPACT) are two such programs implemented under this division. The CDC partners with Kenya’s Ministry of Health to build and sustain Kenya’s FETP and IMPACT programs. Kenya FELTP also receives the bulk of its technical and financial support from the CDC.

AFENET is a non-profit organization and networking alliance of African Field Epidemiology (and Laboratory) Training Programs (FELTPs), and other applied epidemiology training programs. AFENET is committed to ensuring effective prevention and control of epidemics and other priority public health problems in Africa. It has operations in over 31 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa or the World Health Organisation Africa Region (WHO – AFRO). Established in 2005, AFENET is dedicated to helping Ministries of Health in Africa build strong, effective, sustainable programs and capacity to improve public health systems on the African continent. The network’s goal is to strengthen field epidemiology and public health laboratory capacity to contribute effectively to addressing epidemics and other major public health problems in Africa. K-Feltp is a beneficiary of this organisation.
The Moi University is among the lead public universities in Kenya, located in Uasin Gishu county. The Moi University's School of Public Health (SPH) was established in 1998 in recognition of the need for human resource development in public health at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The training programmes of the School have been developed to meet the University's mission of producing skilled and practical health professionals who will not only contribute towards the realization of the country's national goals laid out in The Vision 2030 and the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but also meet demand by employers for health professionals with adequate knowledge, practical skills and appropriate attitude to address priority public health problems and policy issues in Kenya and beyond. FELTP collaborates with Moi University's School of Public Health to deliver Master of Science in Field Epidemiology which is a post-graduate degree that aims to increase epidemiologic workforce capacity in Kenya by training public health professionals with knowledge and skills for enhanced disease surveillance, outbreak investigations and response nationwide.
Kenyatta University is a public research university in Kenya with its main campus in both Nairobi County and Kiambu County, Kenya. The Kenyatta University School of Public Health and Applied Human Sciences, located in the Main campus, was operationalized in August 2011. The establishment of the School was propelled by the need to strengthen delivery of training of innovative and creative public health professionals and researchers and in addition to improve community engagement. The school collaborates with FELTP to deliver the MSc. in Public Health Systems Management and Application.
Formed in 1997, Training Programs in Epidemiology and Public Health Interventions Network (TEPHINET) is a professional network of 73 field epidemiology training programs (FETPs), including those with laboratory and veterinary components, working across more than 100 countries. The mission of TEPHINET is to empower and mobilize a competent field epidemiology workforce to serve all people through standardized training, experiential learning, training program quality improvement, mentoring, and knowledge exchanges in order to connect epidemiologists better, faster, and with quality across the globe.

As a network, TEPHINET supports FETP quality improvement through their accreditation program, provides learning and professional development opportunities for FETP trainees and graduates through scientific conferences and learning materials, assists with field epidemiology workforce mobilization, and facilitates resource-sharing among FETPs through their networking initiatives.

As an implementing partner to organizations such as the CDC, WHO, the U.S. Department of State, and others, TEPHINET provides operations and training support to FETPs through funded projects.

Instruction is provided by accomplished experts in the field, including the resident advisors for epidemiology and laboratory management, CDC-Kenya staff, CDC-Atlanta consultants, Ministry of Health experts, invited guest lecturers from other institutions, and selected second-year residents.
