CDC, the nationís disease prevention agency, undertakes a broad array of programs to help communities fight HIV and AIDS.  Through community funding for HIV prevention, research, and the transfer of vital information and know-how, CDC forms partnerships with communities affected by the epidemic to produce the most effective response possible.
