Excerpt
INTRODUCTION: As the nation moves toward the twenty-first century, the fundamental challenge facing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the same as it was in its early days over 50 years ago — improving the quality of people’s lives by preventing disease, injury, and disability through collaboration with public and private partners throughout the world. CDC seeks to improve health, but to do so in economically responsible ways. When human and financial resources are limited, public health efforts must focus on prevention strategies that yield the most benefit for the investment. Fortunately, many current prevention strategies already offer excellent opportunities to promote good health at a reasonable cost.
