The goals of this document are to:

a. Assess policy options
b. Prioritize policy options

CDC plays an important role in identifying and describing policy options to address public health problems, analyzing policies to understand their potential health, economic and budgetary impacts, and identifying evidence-based policy solutions and gaps in the evidence base. Note that federal law prohibits lobbying related activities by CDC at the federal, state and local level.
