CDC 24/7: Saving Lives. Protecting People.

CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health and safety threats, both foreign and domestic. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, due to 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 and protecting people from health threats.

A strong and well-resourced CDC is vital to all of us. As CDC's independent, nonprofit partner, the CDC Foundation is the sole entity created by Congress to mobilize philanthropic resources to support CDC’s critical health protection mission. When you join with the CDC Foundation, you help accelerate and expand important public health protection initiatives that align with both CDC’s mission and the work of partners like you.
