Tracking Success Stories

CDC currently funds 26 state and local tracking programs as a part of the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network. These state tracking programs work 24/7 saving lives and protecting people from health threats. Since the network launched, public health officials have used state tracking networks to identify trends such as increased asthma and lead poisoning rates and areas with people at high-risk of consuming contaminated drinking water. Now, decisions about public health actions can be made much faster and easier both nationally and locally. Find out more about our Tracking Program success stories below.

Additionally, the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) has partnered with CDC to highlight a collection of twenty-three success stories from the Tracking Network. These stories showcase the impact of using the Tracking Network in promoting health and preventing disease.
