Monitoring + Evaluation

Supporting Success at Every Step

Why it matters

The success of CDC’s Data Modernization Initiative (DMI) is critical for our nation’s response to COVID-19 and beyond. Monitoring and evaluation are how we make sure we are delivering on the promise of data to protect America’s health.
