The Center For Disease Control (CDC) is one of the major operating components of the Department of Health and Human Services that works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.For more details about the CDC organization and current threats or information, please visit www.cdc.gov
