Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

In 1946, the Communicable Disease Centre (CDC) was created in Atlanta, Georgia as part of the wartime agency Malaria Control in War Areas (MCWA). The main activity of CDC concentrated at that time on fighting malaria by killing mosquitoes. Nowadays, CDC focuses its efforts on protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury, and disability (www.cdc.gov – 02.03.2010).
