Looking Back and Ahead

On the Frontlines of COVID-19: CDC’s Global Work in Videos and Photos.

The COVID-19 response is CDC’s largest public health response to date. Since the earliest days of the pandemic in 2020, CDC staff based in more than 60 countries supported local government efforts to limit the spread and impact of COVID-19. This included supporting emergency response, strengthening laboratory capacity, and improving global access to COVID-19 testing, diagnostics, and vaccines.

CDC rapidly and effectively used existing global health programs such as the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and subject matter expertise to move critical resources that were integral to the global COVID-19 response.
