Tran Anh Tu
Master of Public Health/Vietnam FETP Fellow/Doctor of Preventative Medicine
Tran is working as an epidemiologist at regional level in National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology (NIHE). His main tasks are to monitor, manage and analyze data of communicable diseases transferred from lower levels, as well as to generate reports for decision making of prevention and control. He is also experienced on risk assessment of emerging diseases such as avian influenza H7N9, Ebola, MERS-CoV. Recently, he has been contributing to establish the Emergency Operation Center (EOC) at regional level in NIHE, using high technology to support outbreak early detection and response. The vision is to build a data warehouse to defragment current data as well as to gradually transform them from paper to digital. He hopes this upgrade would bring better risk assessment and more responsive response.
