  • Description:
    Infectious diseases remain a major contributor to illness, death, and suffering throughout the world, both from their acute and chronic effects. The potential for epidemics and pandemics is a concern for all countries. The title of this document, “Confronting Infectious Diseases in an Interconnected World: People, Animals, and the Environment,” emphasizes that greater progress in prevention and control of infectious diseases will require us to address human health as interconnected to the health of animals and the environment. This concept has implications for how we conduct our public health work, the focus of our work, and who our partners are and how we work together. In 2007, in recognition of new opportunities for addressing infectious diseases and the need to take a broader approach to disease prevention and control, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reorganized, including creation of a Coordinating Center for Infectious Diseases that includes four Centers, each with a different yet complimentary focus. One of these Centers --- the National Center for Zoonotic, Vector-Borne, and Enteric Diseases (NCZVED) — has made a particular commitment to embracing a “one health” approach to its work in disease prevention and control. This approach requires emphasizing the interconnectedness of human health with the health of animals and the environment. While NCZVED’s sister infectious disease centers also embrace and address these issues as part of their public health missions, this document particularly describes the vision and priorities of NCZVED for the next 5 years. NCZVED will rely on ongoing collaborations with CDC colleagues in the National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention; the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases; and the National Center for Preparedness, Detection, and Control of Infectious Diseases to address these issues.
