According to a new analysis, CDC’s global efforts to treat and prevent HIV contributed to more than half of key PEPFAR outcomes in 2019.
Renowned photographer Thom Pierce traveled with colleagues from CDC to capture the faces and stories of those on the frontlines of CDC’s global HIV response.
This first-person video explores the stories of those whose lives have been transformed by CDC’s efforts as part of PEPFAR.
CDC is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness, known as Coronavirus Disease 2019, or COVID-19, caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. There are ongoing investigations to learn more.
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.
