Pilot Surveillance System for High Impact/Low Prevalence Congenital and Inherited Conditions Program

The grants and programs of the CDC are geared towards the achievement of its general agency mission which is to "collaborate to create the expertise, information, and tools that people and communities need to protect their health – through health promotion, prevention of disease, injury and disability, and preparedness for new health threats."

In keeping with this mission, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recently established the Pilot Surveillance System for High Impact/Low Prevalence Congenital and Inherited Conditions Program wherein it seeks to create and evaluate a surveillance system for congenital and inherited disease conditions.
