Data Center Description
The CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and
Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) accomplishes its mission by providing
national leadership in areas of health promotion and chronic
disease prevention by conducting public health surveillance,
epidemiologic studies, and behavioral interventions; by
disseminating guidelines and recommendations; and by assisting
state health and education agencies to increase their capacity
to prevent chronic diseases and promote healthful behaviors.

We could not accomplish this without our many diverse partners:
state and local health and education departments; other federal
health agencies; international and national health
organizations; academic institutions; philanthropic foundations;
industry and labor groups; and professional, voluntary and
community organizations. NCCDPHP works with partners to develop,
implement, and promote effective prevention efforts nationwide.

Our resources comprise about 逤 million, more than 900
employees, and extramural expenditures totaling approximately
辂 million.
