About Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Infectious Diseases (ELC) Funding

This funding aims to build and improve state health department workforce, training, and tools necessary to rapidly scale up to meet this new Healthcare-associated Infections (HAI) work. The activities described in this guidance are designed to support states that are just starting on HAI prevention activities or, in states that already have some HAI prevention activities, to expand into new HAI prevention areas. A key activity that this is funding will support the ability for states to submit data on their progress toward the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) HAI Prevention Targets. With optimal use, this short-term investment will create new state-level competencies and tools that will continue and leave behind a sustainable infrastructure for reporting on long-term progress toward meeting the HHS HAI Prevention Targets.

To coordinate national HAI prevention efforts and ELC HAI funding, CDC  provided guidance to assist State planning efforts in the prevention of HAIs. This guidance will help to ensure progress towards five-year national prevention targets as described in the HHS Action Plan in the following areas:

  • Integration, Collaboration, and Capacity Building
  • Reporting, Detection, Response and Surveillance
  • Prevention
  • Evaluation, Oversight and Communication
