A New Strategy for Public Health Surveillance at CDC: Improving National Surveillance Activities and Outcomes

Public health surveillance is the cornerstone of public health practice and can be defined as the systematic, ongoing collection, management, analysis, and interpretation of data followed by the dissemination of these data to public health programs to stimulate public health action. This webinar features experts in surveillance strategy discussing how surveillance data is crucially important to inform policy changes, guide new program interventions, sharpen public communications, and help agencies assess research investments. The presenters will describe the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) new strategy for federally supported public health surveillance activities. The new strategy focuses on what CDC must do inside and outside the agency to encourage progress in the field, working side by side with its state, territorial, local, and tribal partners.
