CDC Tanzania: Working Together to Save Lives

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), under the U.S. Mission to Tanzania, established an office in 2001 to support HIV/AIDS prevention, and expanded through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief in 2003. CDC works in Tanzania to strengthen tuberculosis prevention efforts for people living with HIV; enhance laboratory, surveillance, and workforce capacity to respond to disease outbreaks through the Global Health Security Agenda; and implement interventions for malaria prevention and control under the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative.

CDC Tanzania: Working Together to Save Lives

CDC has been working around the world for more than 60 years.

Disease knows no borders. In today’s interconnected world, diseases can spread from an isolated, rural village to any major city in as little as 36 hours. The U.S. cannot protect its borders and the health of its citizens without addressing diseases elsewhere in the world. CDC works 24/7 to protect Americans and save lives around the world by detecting and controlling outbreaks at their source. In addition, CDC helps other countries increase their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to health threats on their own.
