Description:A CDC Framework for Preventing Infectious Diseases: Sustaining the Essentials and Innovating for the Future (CDC's ID Framework) was issued in October 2011 as a roadmap for improving our ability to prevent known infectious diseases and to recognize and control rare, highly dangerous, and newly emerging threats. Although its primary purpose is to guide CDC's infectious disease activities, the document was 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. This Progress Report is intended to provide a brief update on the status of CDC's work since October 2011 to advance the three elements of the ID Framework: Strengthen public health fundamentals, including infectious disease surveillance, laboratory detection, and epidemiologic investigation; Identify and implement high-impact public health interventions to reduce infectious diseases; Develop and advance policies to prevent, detect, and control infectious diseases. Over the past year, CDC programs in the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID); National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP); National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD); and Center for Global Health (CGH) have made significant progress in preventing and controlling infectious diseases. This Progress Report provides a few, selected examples of these accomplishments, organized by Framework element. The examples illustrate how CDC is creating new partnerships and using new ideas and scientific findings to advance public health goals. They also reflect the broad range of infectious disease issues addressed by CDC and its public and private partners, including the issues of special concern highlighted in the ID Framework: antimicrobial resistance, chronic viral hepatitis, food safety, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, safe water, vaccine-preventable diseases, and zoonotic and vectorborne diseases. The Progress Report also provides examples of ongoing work in areas that involve new directions, alliances, and innovations, a particular need highlighted in the ID Framework.
