  • Description:
    National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases: Our Work, Our Stories 2011-2012 serves several purposes. First, it highlights major accomplishments from fiscal years 2011 and 2012 (October 1, 2010-September 30, 2012). NCEZID is CDC's newest national center, created during the organizational improvement initiative of 2009-2010. One of our overarching principles is to be transparent and accountable, and this first report (known by the shorter title NCEZID: Our Work, Our Stories 2011-2012) signals that we are committed to providing regular updates about our progress in protecting people from emerging and zoonotic infectious diseases. And finally, NCEZID: Our Work, Our Stories 2011-2012 places NCEZID's accomplishments in the context of the larger public health missions of CDC and the Office of Infectious Diseases. NCEZID's work overall directly reflects current CDC priorities to strengthen surveillance and epidemiology, enhance the agency's ability to support state and local public health, provide leadership in global health, promote effective public health policy, and address the leading causes of death, illness, and disability. And, as home to two of seven of CDC's domestic "winnable battles" (healthcare-associated infections and food safety), NCEZID is developing scalable strategies that will have a measurable and significant impact on public health. NCEZID: Our Work, Our Stories 2011-2012 also shows how NCEZID priorities and achievements align with the principles guiding all infectious disease work throughout the agency, as described in A CDC Framework for Preventing Infectious Diseases: Sustaining the Essentials and Innovating for the Future. And, lastly, the review of achievements of the past 2 years helped inform the direction for the Center's future work, as outlined in the newly released National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases Strategic Plan, 2012-2017. The prevention and control of emerging and zoonotic infectious diseases is arduous work, but we have made great strides since the fall of 2010. To provide a context for better understanding the significance of these accomplishments, this report begins with a section identifying NCEZID's core value to CDC and public health overall. Our many roles delineates the parts of the broader agency infectious disease mission that NCEZID is responsible for making happen-responding to outbreaks, managing world-class laboratories, ensuring public health preparedness, overseeing a unique portfolio of global activities, and investigating how diseases from animals are spread to people. These roles direct action on a variety of fronts. Taking action details the Center's work that focuses on healthcare-associated infections, antimicrobial resistance, foodborne disease and food safety, vector-borne diseases, high-consequence pathogens, global quarantine and migration, and waterborne disease and water safety. Most, but not all, of the Center's work falls within one of these areas. Absence from this report, however, does not signify lack of importance. NCEZID: Our Work, Our Stories 2011-2012 is not a comprehensive summary of all Center activities of the past 2 years. Limited space dictates that it is more like a highlight reel of our most notable accomplishments.
