Division and Office Overviews

NCEZID is made up of seven divisions that work with partners throughout the United States and around the world to prevent illness, disability, and death caused by a wide range of infectious diseases— from the rare but deadly, like anthrax and Ebola, to the more common, like foodborne disease and healthcare-associated infections. Because the diverse workforces of these seven divisions include an equally broad spectrum of infectious disease expertise, we are better able to identify mysterious—and sometimes very lethal— illnesses, contain outbreaks that sometimes span many states, and save lives.

In addition to divisions, CDC’s One Health Office is based in NCEZID. The One Health Office directs cross-cutting activities about high-priority One Health topics for the center and the entire agency.
