DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 141 pages
This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. As a step toward fostering strategic investments in public health research and science, the CDC developed this comprehensive guide. To achieve practical, cost-effective policies, programs, and practices that improve health, the field of public health will need to place a high priority on interdisciplinary, cross-cutting research that facilitates innovations and helps inform many program areas. Researchers at CDC are aligning their work and research efforts to achieve specific Health Protection Goals that focus on four inter-related areas: healthy people across all stages of life; healthy places and communities; preparedness against infectious, occupational, environmental and terrorist threats; and improved global health.
