  • Description:
    Epidemiology can be considered the central science of public health as it is essential for disease detection, control, and prevention. The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) recently assessed epidemiologic capacity and found serious gaps in personnel, training, and resources nationwide. The 2006 Epidemiology Capacity Assessment (ECA) reveals a critical crossroad for our nations public health infrastructure: we must invest in expansion to meet increasing public health demands or witness the slow erosion of data-driven foundations of United States health policies.

    This report was made possible through funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Cooperative Agreement # U60/CCU07277 and the University of Michigan School of Public Health, Michigan Center for Public Health Preparedness (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Cooperative Agreement # U90/ CCU524243-02).
