  • Description:
    A one-and-a-half day, open public meeting of the Board of Scientific Counselors (BSC), Office of Infectious Diseases (OID), was held on May 3-4, 2017, at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to Board members and CDC staff, the meeting was attended by representatives of several public health partner organizations (appendix).

    The meeting included updates from the Center for Global Health (CGH) and CDC’s infectious disease national centers: the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), and the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID). Reports were made from the BSC’s Food Safety Modernization Act Surveillance Working Group (FSMA SWG) and the Infectious Disease Laboratory Workgroup (IDLWG). The meeting also included focused discussions on H7N9 influenza, Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS CoV), and vector-borne diseases, and presentations on progress towards the elimination of TB and viral hepatitis in the United States. The meeting also included a conversation with Acting CDC Director Anne Schuchat.

    Following the discussion on vector-borne diseases, the BSC passed a unanimous motion to explore the establishment of a joint workgroup on vector-borne disease issues with the BSC of the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH)/Agency for Toxic Substances and Diseases Registry. The BSC also suggested exploring the need for re-activation of the Board’s Antimicrobial Working Group, which has not been active since the establishment of the Presidential Advisory Council for Combating Antibiotic- Resistant Bacteria.
