Infectious Disease Prevention and Control

Local health departments (LHDs) are on the front lines protecting their communities from infectious diseases through activities such as responding to investigating cases and outbreaks; conducting disease surveillance; managing infectious disease reporting systems; tracing and isolating cases; providing education, training and technical assistance to local stakeholders; and conducting community outreach.

NACCHO's Infectious Disease Prevention and Control (IPC) portfolio aims to to strengthen the capacity of LHDs to conduct IPC activities by providing technical and capacity building assistance, developing and disseminating tools and resources, and facilitating information exchange, peer engagement, and learning opportunities. Check out some of our most recently developed resources below, and be sure to visit the Essential Elements of Local Public Health blog for the latest, news, tools, and resources from the field!
