Public-Private Partnerships and CDC
CDC works with the private sector because public-private partnerships advance CDC’s mission of protecting Americans. Americans—and CDC—can accomplish more working together than separately. Two of the most important reasons for public-private partnerships are to ensure health security and contribute to a healthy economy.
CDC helps protect the private sector against expensive and dangerous health threats, provides guidelines and information to protect workers, and helps employers and employees reduce healthcare spending on chronic diseases. CDC works 24/7 as the nation’s health protection agency to keep Americans safe both domestically and internationally.
