    Consolidating and organizing public health expertise and systems within a national public health institute (NPHI) is a proven way for countries to carry out essential public health functions and improve accountability and efficiency. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with over 60 years of experience as the U.S. NPHI is helping countries around the world increase surveillance, laboratory, and outbreak response capacity to improve the detection of and response to public health threats. An NPHI coupled with stronger local outbreak detection and response capabilities offers a sustainable solution for building global public health capacity, achieving global health security, and increasing public health impact.
