CDC 24/7: Saving Lives. Protecting People.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is committed to a single mission: protecting America 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 learns how to fight them and how to support communities and citizens in preventing them. CDC applies groundbreaking research and real-time emergency response to keep America healthy, safe and secure.
In times of unprecedented global threats, a strong and well-resourced CDC is vital to all of us. As CDC's independent nonprofit partner, the CDC Foundation advances CDC's work by building strategic partnerships between CDC and foundations and corporations. We also help educate corporate leaders about the value and importance of CDC's role in protecting the nation's health and security. Please join us and share the information and resources provided here to spread the word about CDC’s life-saving work.
With the world a dangerous place, we need CDC.
