Global Health Center

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.

Where We Work
Responding To COVID-19 Around The World

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.
