    • Description:
      The Communicable Disease Center is a component of the U. S. Public Health Service charged with the responsibility of assisting States, when requested, in the diagnosis, prevention, and control of communicable diseases. Organizationally it is a Division of the Bureau of State Services with headquarters and major facilities in Atlanta, Ga. Specialized installations are located in various parts of the United States including: Savannah, Ga.; Montgomery, Ala.; Kansas City, Kans.; San Francisco, Calif.; Thomasville, Ga.; Pharr, Tex.; Wenatchee, Wash.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Newton, Ga.; Manning, S. C.; Charleston, W. Va.; and other places. Field training centers, operated by the Communicable Disease Center in cooperation with States and/or educational institutions, are located in Amherst, Mass.; Bloomington, Ill.; Buffalo, N. Y.; Columbus, Ga.; Denver, Colo.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; Syracuse, N. Y. (hygiene of housing); and Topeka, Kans. Diarrhea and dysentery control demonstration projects, sponsored by the Center, were operated during 1951 in selected cities of Arizona, Kentucky, New Mexico, and Texas. In addition, as circumstances required and resources permitted, Center specialists were loaned to State health departments to reinforce their programs in relation to communicable disease control problems. Also the Center cooperated with the National Institutes of Health and other Divisions of the Public Health Service, educational institutions, foundations, and other agencies, Federal and nonFederal, in studies and investigations pertaining to various problems of public health.

      Activities summarized in this report represent undertakings and accomplishments by the combined staff of the Communicable Disease Center in the interdependent pursuit of an integrated program encompassing the several aspects of communicable disease control and prevention. Many of the projects were carried on in cooperation with other agencies. In some the Center was principal sponsor and in others the Center's contribution was relatively minor. It is probable that in some instances allocation of credit has overemphasized the role of the Center and depreciated that of coparticipants, and vice versa. As a presentation expedient, activities recorded have been grouped under four major headings: (l) General Activities; (2) Investigations and Studies; (3) Operational Control Programs; and (4) Epidemic and Disaster Aid. This is not a precise grouping, nor is the list of items under the respective headings intended as a complete catalog of activities pursued during the report period. Rather, the purpose is to indicate in general the rms something of the interrelationships, comprehensiveness, relative nature, and application of various activities carried on in different areas of public health work.
