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.

Emergency Response Fund

The CDC Foundation’s Emergency Response Fund enables CDC to respond immediately to changing and unpredictable circumstances and needs. This fund allows CDC to better prepare for and respond to crisis situations in the United States and globally by providing flexibility to meet both immediate and planned needs that would not otherwise be readily available through federally appropriated funds. The speed and flexibility provided through this funding saves lives.
