CDC - Global Health
A disease threat anywhere is a disease threat everywhere. CDC’s Global Health Center works to protect Americans from dangerous and costly public health concerns, including COVID-19, vaccine-preventable diseases, HIV, TB, and malaria—responding when and where health threats arise.
For more than 60 years, CDC has used its scientific expertise to help people throughout the world live healthier, safer, longer lives. During the COVID-19 pandemic, CDC country offices leveraged their staff, existing relationships, critical resources, and on-the-ground assets to support partner countries in the areas of surveillance, laboratory, emergency management, and workforce development.
