    Staff -- At a Glance -- Top 10 Causes of Death -- Epidemiology and Surveillance -- Emerging Public Health Issues -- Laboratory Systems -- HIV Prevention -- Impact in Dominican Republic.

    The Center for Global Health and Prevention (CDC) in the Dominican Republic has four disease impact goals: 1) eliminate transmission of HIV from pregnant mothers to babies, 2) prevent new cases of adult HIV among high-risk populations, 3) reduce the prevalence of tuberculosis, and 4) reduce the impact of infectious disease outbreaks. To achieve these goals, CDC works closely with the Ministry of Health (MoH) and non-governmental partners to conduct epidemiology and surveillance; strengthen laboratory systems; implement HIV prevention; and conduct outbreak response. CDC is a member of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and U.S. Global Health Initiative country teams.
