    "In January 2001, the Pew Environmental Health Commission called for the creation of a coordinated public health system to prevent disease in the United States by tracking and combating environmental health threats. In response, the United States Congress appropriated funding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Fiscal Year (FY) 2002. This funding enabled the development of CDC's National Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Program, which is led by the National Center for Environmental Health's (NCEH) Environmental Health Tracking Branch (EHTB). The purpose of the EPHT Program (the Program) is to provide information from a nationwide network of integrated health and environmental data that drives actions to improve the health of communities. This National Network (the Network) will integrate three distinct components: hazard monitoring, exposure surveillance, and health effects surveillance. CDC's EHTB is establishing the Network by drawing on a wide range of expertise from federal agencies, state and local health and environmental agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), state public health and environmental laboratories, and the Program's Schools of Public Health.
