Public Health Surveillance and Data
In any crisis, time saved equals lives saved. Accurate, instantaneous data can help us pinpoint diseases from the start and direct resources where they matter most.
Through the Data Modernization Initiative, CDC is creating a world in which data can move faster than disease.
And, in August of 2021, CDC stood up a new National Center for Epidemic Forecasting and Outbreak Analytics to forecast and track hotspots for COVID-19 and other emerging biological threats.
See how CDC’s Surveillance Strategy brought forward a new vision for data and opened the door for today’s transformation.
