CDC Moving Forward Summary Report
The CDC posted a report from the review of agency processes last week. The “Moving Forward Summary” report explains how the CDC faces structural and systemic operational challenges, which were exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the pandemic, they also acknowledge that CDC is responsible for some large, public mistakes. Acknowledging the need to change, in April 2022, the CDC Director launched a review of the agency. There were two components to this review, a Structural Review that took place alongside a Scientific and Programmatic Review. Over 50 interviews were conducted, and findings are presented here. Taken together, these in-depth reviews offer CDC a clear path forward to improve scientifically and structurally to better serve the American people and execute the mission of the CDC.
