Policy Research, Analysis, and Development Office

Helping make the case for evidence-driven policy to improve health.


The Policy Research, Analysis, and Development Office (PRADO) in the Office of the Associate Director for Policy (OADP) improves population health by supporting the policy network within CDC that develops, translates, and shares evidence showing the health, economic, and budgetary impact of policy interventions.

The office assists CDC leadership in establishing policy priorities at federal, state, and local levels, and is involved in developing internal regulations and reviewing external regulation.
