    • Description:
      "A CDC Framework for Preventing Infectious Diseases: Sustaining the Essentials and Innovating for the Future--CDC's ID Framework--was developed to provide a roadmap for improving our ability to prevent known infectious diseases and to recognize and control rare, highly dangerous, and newly emerging threats, through a strengthened, adaptable, and multi-purpose U.S. public health system. Although its primary purpose is to guide CDC's infectious disease activities, the document is also designed to guide collective public health action at a time of resource constraints and difficult decisions, while advancing opportunities to improve the nation's health through new ideas, partnerships, technical innovations, validated tools, and evidence-based policies. The ID Framework outlines three critical elements in these efforts: strong public health fundamentals, including infectious disease surveillance, laboratory detection, and epidemiologic investigation; high-impact interventions; and sound health policies. The document also describes priority activities for achieving these essential components of public health, highlighting opportunities afforded through scientific and technological innovations, new partnerships, and the changing U.S. public health and healthcare systems.." - p. iii
