  • Description:
    As the Acting Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Acting Administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), it is my pleasure to present the agency’s budget request for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010. In response to the evolving public health challenges of the 21st century, this budget addresses a balanced portfolio of health protection activities, emphasizing both the urgent threats that we must be prepared to face tomorrow and the urgent realities that we confront today. For more than 60 years, CDC’s mission has been dedicated to protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury, and disability. We are committed to programs that reduce the health and economic consequences of the leading causes of death and disability and that ensure a long, productive healthy life for all people. Each day at CDC, we try to imagine a safer, healthier world: a world where infants are born healthy and cared for so that when they are children, they can arrive at school safe, well-nourished, and ready to learn; a world in which teenagers have the information, motivation, and hope they need to make healthy choices about their lifestyles and behaviors; and a world in which adults enjoy active and productive lives in safe communities where they can remain independent and engaged with family and friends throughout their senior years. Imagining this safer, healthier world brings us closer to reaching our vision of ―Healthy People in a Healthy World–Through Prevention.‖ CDC, in collaboration with HHS, continues to play an important role in the Healthy People 2010 framework and goals. In addition, the agency is actively involved with HHS in the development of Healthy People 2020. In highlighting our accomplishments and prioritizing our investments, the FY 2010 budget request reinforces CDC’s position as our nation’s health-protection leader and conveys our vision for continuing this important work in the future. Maintaining the agency’s investments into FY 2010 for critical programs will allow the agency to advance our core health-protection mission while providing the leadership and investment that are needed to move our nation in the direction of better health. Reforming our health system is fundamental to the economic future of the United States. CDC is committed to focusing our financial investments and programmatic efforts to accelerate health impact, reduce health disparities, and protect people at home and abroad.
