To keep pace with emerging public health challenges and to address the leading causes of death and disability, CDC initiated an effort called Winnable Battles to achieve measurable impact quickly. Winnable Battles are public health priorities with large-scale impact on health and known effective strategies to address them. By identifying priority strategies, defining clear targets and working closely with our public health partners, we are making significant progress in reducing health disparities and the overall health burden from these diseases and conditions.
Winnable Battles: Progress
While CDC and its public health partners have made progress in many Winnable Battle areas since the initiative’s inception in 2010, we still have more to do to meet our 2015 goals. View the Progress Reports for status, at-a-glance dashboards and recent accomplishments.
