Policy and Strategy at CDC
Office of the Associate Director for Policy and Strategy (OADPS) builds and translates evidence for what works in public health to inform decision makers and to help CDC’s science go further, faster. OADPS drives action across the Agency and connects CDC to crucial partners and stakeholders.
OADPS does this work through three complementary offices:
Office of Policy Analytics & Population Health
The Office of Policy Analytics & Population Health (OPAPH) serves to amplify the work of CDC to accelerate improved population health, healthcare, and evidence-based policy analytics to inform decision-making.
Program Performance and Evaluation Office
Program Performance and Evaluation Office (PPEO) works across CDC to make sure CDC’s work is strategic, well-integrated, and continually improving.
The Community Guide Office
The Community Guide Office (CGO) provides scientific, technical, and administrative support for the Community Preventive Services Task Force and supports the Community Guide, a menu of evidence-based interventions to help decision-makers improve health and prevent disease.
