2018 Accomplishments: CDC’s National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases

As expected, 2018 was another busy year in emerging infectious diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To reflect, the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID) recently released the 2018 Accomplishments Report. This report describes the important work of NCEZID over the past year, none of which would have been possible without your help.

As you know, CDC works 24/7 to protect America from health, safety, and security threats, both foreign and in the United States. Its expert scientists, laboratories, and emergency responders work around the clock to protect people from a multitude of health threats, including antibiotic-resistant infections, foodborne outbreaks, bioterrorism, deadly diseases like Ebola and rabies, diseases that cross borders, and illnesses spread from mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas.

While we have much more work to do and we do not know when or where the next outbreak or response will occur, CDC recognizes that the public health system and partners like you remain vigilant and ready to respond.
