To keep pace with emerging public health challenges and to address the leading causes of death and disability, CDC initiated an effort called Winnable Battles to achieve measurable impact quickly. Winnable Battles are public health priorities with large-scale impact on health and known effective strategies to address them. By identifying priority strategies, defining clear targets and working closely with our public health partners, we are making significant progress in reducing health disparities and the overall health burden from these diseases and conditions.
Winnable Battles: Progress
While CDC and its public health partners have made progress in many Winnable Battle areas since the initiative’s inception in 2010, we still have more work to do. View the CDC Winnable Battles Final Report 2010-2015 and the 2014 and 2013 Progress Reports for details.
