CDC Injury Research Agenda, 2009-2018
At CDC’s Injury Center, we work to ensure everyone in the United States can live life to their fullest potential. We translate science into effective programs and policies that prevent unintentional and violence-related injuries and that minimize the consequences of injuries when they occur. Research is fundamental to our success because good data are essential in making sound, smart investments. Research provides the knowledge that we need to understand what is possible, what is not, and the best way to proceed in our intervention efforts.
CDC's Injury Research Agenda [PDF 4.1MB, 120 pages] describes the Injury Center’s research needs and priorities for 2009–2018. See the nine one-page fact sheets below for concise, topic specific summaries of the research priorities outlined in the Injury Research Agenda.
Injury Research Priority Topics
Investing in these priorities will help prevent needless deaths and painful, costly injuries. We know that we can make a difference. We look forward to working with the injury prevention and control community to implement this agenda for a safer, healthier nation.
