CDC: An Agency Without Borders


CDC field staff are invaluable first-line defense against public health threats. Whether stationed across the U.S. or in centers around the world, our experts provide outstanding scientific expertise to local and state health districts, local and state departments of health, and international health organizations and ministries of health to better address global challenges such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, emergency and refugee health, infectious and emerging diseases, non communicable diseases, injuries, and more. Knowledge gleaned from this work is used to develop and advocate public health policies and practice that strengthen national and international health and resilience.
