Centers for Disease Control and Prevention justification of appropriation estimates for Appropriations Committees fiscal year 2016
Corporate Authors:Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.)
Description:I am pleased to present our budget request for fiscal year 2016. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the nation’s health protection agency. We work 24/7 to protect Americans from health and safety threats, both foreign and domestic. Our programs promote quality of life and prevent the leading causes of disease, injury, disability, and death.
We are committed to maximizing the impact of every dollar entrusted to our agency. This budget request maintains critical investments in FY 2015 and continues our efforts to increase public health capacity at local, state, national, and international levels. Our efforts align with the Administration’s priorities and support Department of Health Human Services goals to help people live healthy, safe, and productive lives.
Our FY 2016 budget request includes increased investment to:
• Attack the growing problem of antibiotic resistance
• Increase global public health capacity and security
• Reduce deaths due to prescription painkiller abuse and overdose
• Sustain progress in ending the transmission of polio
• Continue to improve our disease fighting tools through advanced molecular detection
Performance improvement is a critical aspect of our work. We regularly measure how our programs serve the public and meet public health aims. As such, this request includes data for how we measure success for each of our programs.
I am confident this budget supports CDC’s ability to carry out its critical mission and sustain key efforts to preserve and protect the lives of Americans.
