As a bureau of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
is at the forefront of meeting the health challenges of today and the future. You may not know our faces, but you hear
from us and about us in the news when an outbreak occurs and when a quick response is needed. Whether we are protecting
the American people from public health threats, researching emerging diseases, partnering with national and international
organizations to develop health systems; or helping to immunize children in a small town village, we rely on CDC employees
to make a real difference in the health and well-being of people here and around the world. Visit
