Public-Private Partnership Policies and Guidelines

Authorized by Congress, the CDC Foundation was created to facilitate partnerships between CDC and the private sector. In that role, we help ensure that programs will have a meaningful impact for CDC, complement CDC’s priorities and ongoing work, and present no conflict of interest for CDC or the CDC Foundation. CDC has comprehensive policies and guidelines governing partnerships and acceptance of gifts, which are considered even before a project concept is submitted to the Foundation.

To help address questions about our relationship with CDC and our partnership-building process, we have developed a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. If you have additional questions relating to these issues, please contact us at 404.653.0790.
