BUREAU OF INFECTIOUS DISEASES- CDC (HOTLINE)

Mission

CDC 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.

CDC increases the health security of our nation. As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects

people from health threats. To accomplish our mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information

that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.
