    For over 30 years, the Center for Global Health and Prevention (CDC) as helped strengthen public health and laboratory systems in Kenya, creating an integrated and state-of-the-art research and program center. This model ties together multiple program areas, leveraging program strengths and working in partnership with the Government of Kenya to help build sustainable public health capacity.

    CDC Kenya saves lives by conducting research on the effectiveness of new interventions—such as vaccines, drugs, and diagnostics—and by implementing evidence-based public health programs to prevent disease and reduce death and disability. As part of the Center for Global Health, CDC Kenya advances science and technology in Kenya and the East Africa region, particularly where current solutions are lacking. Once tools are shown to be effective, CDC Kenya evaluates ways to improve delivery and address obstacles to uptake. CDC Kenya helps translate research findings into policy recommendations alongside the Government of Kenya, World Health Organization, and other partners. CDC Kenya plays a key role in several global health initiatives, including the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
