    Since the creation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 1946, the agency's global health activities have expanded in scale, scope, and depth to address evolving health challenges and emerging threats around the world. From an early focus on malaria prevention and control in the United States, CDC's efforts have expanded globally over time to encompass diverse diseases and conditions, protect the United States from external health threats, improve public health capacity internationally, and acquire science-based knowledge to improve domestic as well as global health. In 2010, CDC established its Center for Global Health (CGH), recognizing that domestic and global health are indivisible and that no country can protect the health of its citizens in isolation from the rest of the world.1 CDC engages internationally to protect the health of the American people and save lives worldwide, in the belief that healthy societies are also more just, stable, and prosperous. CDC possesses unique expertise to address the challenges of global health and works in concert with domestic and international partners to improve health and well-being around the world. CGH is responsible for technical work conducted by global programs within the Center, including global immunization, HIV/AIDS, disease detection and response, health systems and laboratory strengthening, and parasitic diseases and malaria. Many other CDC programs contribute expertise and engage in global health work, including for tuberculosis elimination, the control of sexually-transmitted diseases and hepatitis infections, antimicrobial resistance, bacterial and viral respiratory infections, vectorborne diseases, rabies, and viral hemorrhagic fevers. CGH facilitates collaborations among these programs and in many cross-cutting areas such as maternal and child health, refugee health, infectious and non-communicable diseases, outbreak responsiveness, and water and sanitation. In addition, CGH provides leadership and management support to CDC's field staff and country offices, the agency's visible face on the front lines internationally where global health activities are implemented and country priorities are supported. This global health strategy articulates CDC's role in global health, communicates the vision for global health work at CDC, and identifies CDC's global health priorities. (See Appendix for a list of reference materials used in the development of the CDC Global Health Strategy.) Invaluable input and support from across the agency and from external partners were provided during the strategy development process. CDC staff reviewed program-specific strategies, conducted interviews with its Country Directors, and facilitated workshop discussions with over 100 CDC subject matter experts. Staff solicited external feedback from representatives of key partners including the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), U.S. Department of State, Health and Human Services Office of Global Affairs, Department of Defense, United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), World Health Organization (WHO), CDC Foundation, and select ministries of health (MOHs). CDC also received guidance and direction from the Global Work Group, a sub-group of the Advisory Committee to the CDC Director, responsible for providing input on CDC global health issues.
