Operating Division Grant Portfolios: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR)
Mission: To collaborate and create the expertise, information, and tools that people and communities need to protect their health promotion, prevention of disease, injury and disability, and preparedness for new health threats.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) protects the health and safety of people at home and abroad by providing credible information to enhance health decisions, and promoting health through strong partnerships. CDC serves as the national focus for developing and applying disease prevention and control, environmental health, and health promotion and education activities designed to improve the health of the people of the United States and around the world.
CDC seeks to accomplish its mission by working with partners throughout the nation and world to monitor health, detect and investigate health problems, conduct research to enhance prevention, develop and advocate sound public health policies, implement prevention strategies, promote healthy behaviors, foster safe and healthful environments, and provide leadership and training.
CDC performs many of the administrative functions for the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), a sister agency of CDC. ATSDR is charged with assessing health hazards at specific hazardous waste sites, helping to prevent or reduce exposure and the illnesses that result, and increasing knowledge and understanding of the health effects that may result from exposure to hazardous substances.
CDC has created a set of four overarching health protection goals:
- Healthy People in Every Stage of Life – reduce health risks, at all stages of life, through the most efficient and effective means possible
- Healthy People in Healthy Places – ensure the places we live, work, and play have safe, healthy environments
- People Prepared for Emerging Health Threats – protect people in all communities from infectious, occupational, environmental, and terrorist threats
- Healthy People in a Healthy World – improve global health through medical technology, international coalitions, government interventions, and basic behavior changes
CDC has defined six key strategies to guide its decisions and priorities so that it can achieve the health protection goals:
- Health Impact Focus: Align CDC's staff, strategies, goals, investments, and performance to maximize impact on the population's health and safety
- Customer-centricity: Market what people want and need to choose health
- Public Health Research: Create and disseminate the knowledge and innovations people need to protect their health now and in the future
- Leadership: Leverage CDC’s unique expertise, partnerships and networks to improve the health system
- Global Health Impact: Extend CDC’s knowledge and tools to promote health protection around the world
- Accountability: Sustain people’s trust and confidence by making the most efficient and effective use of their investment in CDC
