    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began operations in Laos with a memorandum of understanding in 2006. The agreement was renewed for another five years in August 2011, with a focus on pandemic, avian, and seasonal influenza. Since 2006, there has been a significant strengthening of engagement to include technical assistance in HIV/AIDS prevention and control and expanded maternal and child health immunization coverage. CDC programmatic activities are primarily worked with and through a WHO Country Collaboration. CDC provides de-facto Country representation for U.S. Government health interests, including those of the Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Inspection Service.
