Excellence in surveillance, epidemiology, and laboratory services
Support for state, tribal, local, and territorial public health
Global health impact, before diseases cross borders
Scientific and program expertise to advance policy change that promotes health
Prevention of illness, injury, disability, and death
The FY 2013 budget request prioritizes essential investments. The request also streamlines our approach, as we continue our commitment to be efficient, effective stewards of the American people’s resources. Maintaining critical agency investments in FY 2013 will allow CDC to continue its important work and build public health capacity at the local, state, and international levels to protect and promote health
