CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden Releases Winnable Battles Progress Report 2010-2015

Many of the leading causes of injury, illness, disability, and death in the United States can be prevented. One of Dr. Tom Frieden’s first initiatives as CDC director was to launch a Winnable Battles initiative to push for progress in key areas where much more progress is possible – healthcare-associated infections; tobacco; nutrition, physical activity, and obesity; food safety; motor vehicle safety; teen pregnancy; and HIV prevention. The Winnable Battles Progress Report 2010-2015 shows where CDC stands on meeting their 2015 goals.
