  • Description:
    CDC's environmental public health work cuts across several centers. The National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) focuses on the following program areas: Safeguarding the health of people from environmental threats; Providing leadership in the use of environmental health sciences-including environmental epidemiology, environmental sanitation, and laboratory sciences-to protect public health; Responding and sharing solutions to environmental public health problems worldwide. NCEH consists of: The Division of Laboratory Sciences, which develops and applies laboratory science to: Prevent disease and death caused by exposure to toxic substances that result from chemical emergencies or chemical terrorism; Assist disease-prevention programs requiring special laboratory expertise; the Division of Emergency and Environmental Health Services, which provides national and international leadership for coordinating, delivering, and evaluating emergency and environmental public health services; the Division of Environmental Hazards and Health Effects, which investigates the relation between human health and the environment. This brochure provides an "A-to-Z" overview of the many environmental public health programs and activities in which we are engaged. Each of our programs and activities not only advances the mission of NCEH: to promote health and quality of life by preventing or controlling those diseases or deaths that result from interactions between people and their environment--but also the overall mission of CDC--to promote health and quality of life by preventing and controlling disease, injury, and disability.
