Public Health

Preventive health care and public health initiatives help Americans live healthier, longer, and more productive lives. In line with broad public support, Research!America advocates for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other governmental agencies that protect against threats to public health. Despite pressing threats such as infectious diseases, the opioid crisis, and rising rates of suicide, CDC funding is significantly lagging public health need. Research!America is working to increase funding for the CDC and in other ways strengthen our nation’s public health capacity and impact.
