Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Prevention and Control of Emerging Infectious Diseases (ELC)
CDC’s Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Prevention and Control of Emerging Infectious Diseases (ELC) Program provides epidemiology, laboratory, and health information systems capacity building support to 64 state, large local, and U.S. territory and affiliate health departments through a cooperative agreement.
Frontline health departments are crucial to the nation’s ability to monitor, prevent, and respond to infectious diseases and outbreaks. The ELC Program is an essential component of CDC funding and technical assistance support to help make their work possible.
