Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is one of the thirteen major operating components of the Department of Health and Human Services, the principal U.S. government agency for protecting the health and safety of all Americans and for providing essential human services, especially for those people who are least able to help themselves.  CDC has defined four specific health impact goals to prioritize and focus its work and investments and to measure progress:

·         Healthy People in Every Stage of Life

·         Healthy People in Healthy Places

·         People Prepared for Emerging Health Threats, and

·         Healthy People in a Healthy World.

Created in 2000, the CDC Public Health Law Program works to improve the public’s health through law.  Visit the websites of CDC at www.cdc.gov and the Public Health Law Program at http://www.cdc.gov/phlp.
