CDC Issues New Roadmap for Preventing ID Threats

A new roadmap from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lays out how to improve the nation’s ability to prevent and control infectious disease threats. Last issued in 1998, CDC’s updated Framework for Preventing Infectious Diseases was developed to guide CDC’s ID activities and outlines three main elements in these efforts: strong public health fundamentals, including surveillance, laboratory detection, and epidemiologic investigation; high-impact interventions; and sound health policies.

The framework and a two-page summary are available on CDC’s website: www.cdc.gov/OID/framework.html.
