CDC has been working around the world for more than 60 years.
The reason is simple: in today’s interconnected world, a disease threat anywhere is a disease threat everywhere. We help detect and control outbreaks at their source so that Americans can live healthier, more stable, and productive lives.
CDC protects Americans through global health.
