    Responding to outbreaks in the United States and around the world is an important part of the mission of the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID). During a multistate foodborne outbreak, for example, NCEZID often serves as lead coordinator between public health partners to detect the outbreak, define its size and extent, and identify the source.

    In fiscal year (FY) 2015, NCEZID received 24 requests from states and other countries to assist in the investigations of outbreaks of infectious disease. These requests, known as Epi-Aids, involved NCEZID’s support for health departments or ministries of health through epidemiological investigations, laboratory analyses, and technical assistance.
