Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use

As one of a number of partners in the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use, the CDC Foundation works with experts at CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) to implement the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS). GATS monitors adult tobacco use and the effectiveness of tobacco control measures among adults in 36 countries.

Preventing Infections in Cancer Patients

Through a CDC Foundation collaboration with Amgen, CDC is leading a comprehensive program focused on providing information, action steps and tools for patients, their families, and their healthcare providers to reduce the risk of developing potentially life-threatening infections during chemotherapy treatment. Studies show that 10 percent of cancer patients undergoing treatment end up hospitalized due to infection, and every two hours a patient dies from this complication.

Global Disaster Response Fund

A disaster can strike anytime, and experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must be ready to respond to help address concerns to public health. One such response was to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2014. It is vital to ensure CDC has the funding needed to kick-start its response in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. When called upon, the CDC Foundation’s Global Disaster Response Fund can provide this much-needed support.
