Become a Sponsor

Types of Sponsorship

As a non-profit, non-governmental organization, TEPHINET relies on the generosity of sponsors to support all components of our scientific conferences. TEPHINET is currently seeking new sponsors to support our conferences in the following ways:

1. Event sponsorship: Provide funding to cover the logistical costs of the conference (venue, audiovisual technology, signage and materials, translation services, etc.). 

2. Scholarships: Oral and poster presenters who are FETP trainees and/or recent graduates from low- and middle-income countries often require support in order to be able to attend a conference and present their work. The average cost of a scholarship to support one presenter is $3,500 (USD) and covers airfare, visa fees, meals and accommodations, and conference registration fees. 

3. Pre-conference workshops: TEPHINET conferences typically feature a full day of pre-conference workshops on a range of public health topics. Half-day and full-day workshop sessions are available. For more information on hosting a workshop, please contact conferences [at] tephinet [dot] org.

Why Sponsor?

As a sponsor, your organization will receive recognition for supporting the professional development of field epidemiologists and the creation of stronger public health systems worldwide. You will have the opportunity to increase your brand visibility among an audience of epidemiologists, physicians, nurses, veterinarians, and other public health workers from around the world. Our events draw the participation of officials from country ministries of health and related areas such as national defense and social services.

Events are about starting quality relationships, and TEPHINET conferences are no different. As a network, TEPHINET strives to make our conferences spaces that are as much about quality interaction as they are about information, because we know that bringing together professionals from different backgrounds often leads to groundbreaking solutions. A TEPHINET conference might just be the place your organization finds its next great partnership.

Our Experience

To date, TEPHINET has organized ten global conferences and nineteen regional conferences in as many countries around the world. We are familiar with the complexities of planning an event overseas and can help your organization navigate the logistical challenges of sponsoring an international event.

What Our Attendees Are Saying

"Attending [the 9th TEPHINET Global Scientific Conference] was a great time in my field epidemiology career as I had an opportunity to meet and interact with people with vast experiences in the field. In meeting and presenting to them, I was able to share my country health profile and received suggested measures and ways which we could use to help deal with some health problems facing our communities...In general, I continued to acquire new knowledge and skills." - W. William, Tanzania FELTP
