Division of Global Health Protection (DGHP)

Global health protection is about more than one country, one issue, or one pathogen. Many factors affect our health security, like infectious diseases, humanitarian crises, and the growing burden of noncommunicable diseases. No matter what the cause, the Division of Global Health Protection (DGHP) and its partners across CDC and the globe are working to protect health and save lives.
