CDC Center for Global Health 2016 Annual Report
CDC’s global health work has a clear mission: to protect and improve health globally through science, policy, partnership, and evidence-based public health action. By ensuring that countries have the capabilities to prevent, detect, and respond to or treat health threats within their borders, the Center for Global Health (CGH) helps prevent regional and global health crises that affect health, security, and economic stability abroad and at home.
In 2016, CGH’s dedicated staff advanced this mission across many disease goals and geographic areas around the world. This annual report illustrates the work that has been done in 2016 and provides a portrait of CGH’s priorities and achievements, and the work that remains. This report also illustrates why CDC’s global health work is important and how it contributes to protecting people’s health and quality of life, both in the United States and abroad.
