EIP Network Activities
The Emerging Infections Program (EIP) is a network of 12 state health departments. EIP activities focus on surveillance, applied research, and flexible and enhanced responses to emerging issues. These population-based surveillance efforts generate reliable estimates of the incidence of certain infections and provide the foundation for a variety of epidemiologic studies to explore risk factors, spectrum of disease, and the impact of prevention strategies.
Active Bacterial Core surveillance (ABCs)
ABCs is a laboratory- and population-based surveillance system for five bacterial pathogens. These include group A Streptococcus, group B Streptococcus, Haemophilus influenzae, Neisseria meningitidis, and Streptococcus pneumoniae. ABCs aims to estimate the invasive disease burden and trends for these pathogens. ABCs also monitors changes in antimicrobial resistance and other characteristics over time through collection of bacterial isolates and demographic and clinical data.

COVID-19 Associated Hospitalization Surveillance Network (COVID-NET)
COVID-NET is a population-based surveillance platform for laboratory-confirmed COVID-19-associated hospitalizations among children and adults. The goals of COVID-NET include estimating overall and age-specific COVID-19-associated hospitalization rates, as well as describing the characteristics, clinical features, and clinical course of people hospitalized with COVID-19 infection. COVID-NET is one of three Respiratory Virus Hospitalization Surveillance Network (RESP-NET) surveillance platforms. Data are displayed on the COVID-NET interactive dashboard and the RESP-NET interactive dashboard.

Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet)
FoodNet tracks trends for infections commonly transmitted through food. FoodNet estimates the number of foodborne illnesses in the United States, monitors trends in incidence of specific foodborne illnesses over time, attributes illnesses to specific foods and settings, and disseminates this information to improve public health practice and guide interventions to reduce the burden of foodborne illness.
Healthcare Associated Infections—Community Interface (HAIC)
HAIC surveillance activities and special projects seek to promote patient safety and healthcare quality through: evaluation of the epidemiology and public health impact of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), antimicrobial resistance (AR), and other healthcare-related adverse events; assessment of the effect of HAI and AR prevention and control strategies; development and exploration of innovations in healthcare safety surveillance methods; and identification of health disparities among persons affected by HAIs or AR and opportunities for interventions.
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine Impact Monitoring Project (HPV-IMPACT)
HPV-IMPACT is a surveillance project for high-grade cervical lesions that could progress to invasive cervical cancer if left untreated. Data from HPV-IMPACT allow scientists to monitor the impact of the HPV vaccination program in the United States and evaluate vaccine effectiveness.

Influenza Hospitalization Surveillance Network (FluSurv-NET)
FluSurv-NET conducts surveillance for laboratory-confirmed influenza-associated hospitalizations in children and adults. The goals of FluSurv-NET include estimating overall and age-specific influenza-associated hospitalization rates on a weekly basis, as well as describing the characteristics, clinical features, and clinical course of people hospitalized with influenza infection. FluSurv-NET also contributes to the estimation of annual and weekly disease burden of influenza in the United States. FluSurv-NET data are updated weekly on FluView Interactive.

Mpox Vaccine Effectiveness Evaluation
This multi-jurisdictional case-control study will evaluate the effectiveness and durability of JYNNEOS ™ vaccine against mpox disease. These data will be critical to informing public health decision-making and vaccine policy for the control and prevention of mpox.

Prion surveillance monitors the continued absence of new forms of human prion disease and provides data on the background incidence and trends of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease to inform prion disease-related public health policies.

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Hospitalization Surveillance Network (RSV-NET)
RSV-NET is a population-based surveillance platform for laboratory-confirmed RSV-associated hospitalizations in children and adults. The goals of RSV-NET include estimating overall and age-specific RSV-associated hospitalization rates, as well as describing the characteristics, clinical features, and clinical course of people hospitalized with RSV infection. RSV-NET is one of three Respiratory Virus Hospitalization Surveillance Network (RESP-NET) surveillance platforms. RSV-NET data are displayed on the RSV-NET interactive dashboard and the RESP-NET interactive dashboard.

TickNET fosters collaboration between state health departments, academic centers, and CDC to prevent and enhance surveillance for tickborne diseases. TickNET does this by conducting the following: queries of electronic health records and other data sources; knowledge, attitude, and practice surveys; high-quality prevention trials; and pathogen discovery studies.
