Surveillance and Data Projects
Advancements in connectivity and access to new data sources are unlocking information for better health.
Through the Data Modernization Initiative (DMI), CDC is creating a world in which data can move faster than disease. Projects to strengthen our foundational surveillance systems are significantly improving the data we use to find and face our biggest public health threats, including COVID-19, opioid overdose, suicide, influenza, and more.
