  • Description:
    The CEFO Program is dedicated to strengthening epidemiologic and scientific support, as well as enhancing capabilities, of preparedness and response activities of state, local, territorial and tribal public health programs. With 31 CEFOs in 25 health departments, the CEFO Program represents one of the largest assignments of CDC staff epidemiologists to full-time positions in state and local health agencies in the history of CDC.

    Last year the CEFOs played critical roles in public health responses to major national and international emergencies, including flooding in the Midwest, tornadoes in the Southeast, and the earthquake and cholera outbreak in Haiti. CEFO contributions to enhancing epidemiologic capacity and public health preparedness in their jurisdictions include training local health department staff, strengthening surveillance systems, building relationships with healthcare providers, and facilitating interactions with CDC and other federal agencies.
