CDC’s DVBD Supports States and Territories

CDC’s Division of Vector-Borne Diseases’ (DVBD) provides funding and technical assistance to state and territorial health departments through the Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity (ELC) cooperative agreement.

The goal of the vector-borne ELC program is to build sustainable, locally relevant programs to identify, prevent, and respond to vector-borne disease threats. DVBD funding supports capacity for surveillance, diagnosis, response, and reporting of vector-borne diseases.
