    • Description:
      The National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID) was established in 2010, with a mission and scientific activities that trace back to the earliest days of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This document is a strategic roadmap for the work necessary during the next 5 years to realize the Center"s vision--prevent infection, protect people, and save lives. NCEZID is responsible for the prevention and control of a wide range of infectious diseases, including rare but deadly diseases like anthrax and Ebola hemorrhagic fever, and more common illnesses like foodborne diseases and healthcare-associated infections. The Center"s expert staff manages a broad portfolio of science-based programs that also promote water safety, the health of migrating populations, and the identification and control of diseases transmitted by animals and insects (e.g., rabies, Lyme disease). NCEZID works closely with the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, the National Center for HIV/ AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention, and other parts of CDC to fulfill the agency"s commitment to protect against the spread of all infectious diseases. NCEZID is one of the agency"s principal sources of epidemiologic and laboratory expertise about bacterial, viral, and fungal pathogens as well as infectious diseases of unknown origin. State and local health departments, other federal agencies, and foreign ministries of health look to NCEZID to assist with wide-ranging problems--from illness and death in 28 states caused by Listeria-contaminated cantaloupes, to an outbreak of anthrax in hippos and humans in Kenya, to rising rates of tuberculosis among people immigrating to the United States, to new outbreaks of dengue in south Florida. And, it is primarily because NCEZID"s diverse workforce includes a correspondingly broad spectrum of infectious disease expertise that mysterious illnesses are identified, outbreaks are contained, and lives are saved. None of this work could happen without an ever-expanding extensive network of partnerships. NCEZID collaborates with many public and private partners, most notably federal, state, and local public health departments, public health organizations, academia, industry, and global multilateral organizations and ministries of health.
