Mission

CDC works 24/7 keeping America safe from health, safety, and security threats, both foreign and domestic. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease, and supports communities and citizens to do the same. CDC is the nation’s health protection agency — saving lives, protecting people from health threats, and saving money through prevention.

Organization

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 is our nation’s health protection agency, and our scientists and disease detectives work around the world to track diseases, research outbreaks, and respond to emergencies of all kinds. CDC works with partners around the country and world to:

  • Prepare the US to respond to emergency health threats
  • Investigate deadly disease outbreaks around the world
  • Stop disease outbreaks before they spread
  • Detect harmful germs rapidly in the US food supply
  • Strengthen the quality, response and effectiveness of America’s laboratories
  • Provide critical data that saves lives and protects people
  • Put proven prevention strategies to work
  • Provide life-saving vaccines
