Surveillance

A pathogen can travel around the globe to major cities in as little as 36 hours. CDC experts are on the frontlines fighting diseases to protect Americans in the United States and abroad. CDC works around the clock to get the right information into the right hands at the right time.

CDC’s global activities protect Americans from major health threats, including Ebola, influenza, tuberculosis (TB) and malaria. CDC monitors disease outbreaks 24/7 around the world to prevent regional and global health crises that affect health, security and economic stability abroad and at home.
