CDC Injury Center research priorities

  • Description:
    Injuries and violence are among the top 10 leading causes of causes of death in the United States and among the top three for people between the ages of 1 and 44. Injuries and violence affect people of all ages and all socioeconomic groups and range from child abuse to older adult falls. While many may view injuries as inevitable or unavoidable, they are in fact predictable and preventable.

    The mission of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (Injury Center) is to prevent violence and injuries and reduce their consequences. We accomplish our mission through surveillance, research, and the development, implementation, and evaluation of effective interventions. Although essential to any public health strategy, non-research activities such as surveillance, program implementation, translation, and evaluation are not covered in this document. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Injury Center collaborates with partners, such as the Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core-VIPP), the Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program, and the prescription Drug Overdose Prevention for States program, to implement public health strategies for the prevention of unintentional injury and violence. Non-research activities are reflected on CDC’s Injury Center website.

    These research priorities update and replace the CDC Injury Research Agenda 2009–2018 published in January 2009.
