    • Description:
      Issue title: The Use of surveillance and research data to inform policies Welcome to the second quarter global health E-Brief, designed to inform readers about key global health activities at the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Our second issue for 2008 spotlights the use of surveillance and research data to inform policies, and the life-saving power of these policy decisions - when implemented. For example, after a two-day meeting, 14 African countries made policy decisions that will impact over four million children -- with implementation, they will be eligible to receive a life-saving vaccine to prevent them from pneumonia and meningitis; and, CDC and the World Health Organization have developed a groundbreaking surveillance method to help prove the effectiveness of antiretroviroal treatment (ART) expansion programs.
