The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has announced
that it will integrate its operational units into four
coordinating centers to leverage resources and increase
flexibility in the face of public health threats, emerging
issues and chronic health conditions.
The changes stem from CDC’s Futures Initiative, an ongoing
strategic development process started last year to integrate
hundreds of employees, other agencies, organizations, and
the public, said CDC.
It said the initiative is intended to align its priorities
and investments to be prepared to protect people from
environmental, terrorist and infectious threats, as well as
to promote health and prevent disease, injury and disability.
“Today’s world characterized by tremendous globalization,
connectivity, and speed poses entirely new challenges. The
steps we are taking through this initiative will better
position us to meet these challenges head on,” said CDC
Director Dr. Julie Gerberding.
