An Epi-Aid is the mechanism CDC uses for public health authorities to request short-term (1–3 weeks) epidemiologic assistance. An Epi-Aid allows rapid response by CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) officers, who assist in investigating an infectious or non-infectious disease outbreak, natural or manmade disaster, or other public health emergency. The focus of the epidemiologic investigation is to make practical recommendations for actions to mitigate the urgent public health problem.
