Description:Our mission -- Activity snapshot -- NCIPC divisions: Division of Injury Response, Division of Unintentional Injury Prevention, Division of Violence Prevention.
CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) works to prevent injuries and violence, and reduce their consequences. NCIPC is leading a coordinated public health approach to injury and violence prevention, guided by the belief that everyone should have access to the best information and resources to help them live life to its fullest potential. To be responsive to emerging trends and increasing injury burden while ensuring that we continue to support the translation and dissemination of proven and promising interventions and policies and use our resources wisely.
We have identified four areas for our current work:
motor vehicle-related injury prevention prevention of violence against children and youth prevention of prescription drug overdose prevention of traumatic brain injury
Our intent is to be more flexible and nimble when it comes to being able to respond to emerging concerns, as well as addressing issues where promising practices and policies are ready for dissemination, implementation and further evaluation. The identification of these areas does not mean that we will eliminate work in other areas; rather, it gives us a way to prioritize resources and efforts when necessary.
