We work with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) on several projects to help improve the health of Californians. These projects include:
Sexually Transmitted Diseases Prevention and Control
Through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control, we provide surveillance, data analysis, health promotion and quality improvement to address the prevention and control of gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia in California.
We work to prevent and control tuberculosis in California. We researched how to reduce the risk of bringing TB into California at border crossings. We helped develop a five-year action plan for eliminating TB in California by 2040. We provide expert advice to clinicians and local departments of public health when they encounter people with active TB in their populations.
We partner with the state to deploy information about the availability of vaccines to ensure local doctors are vaccinating California children.
