Abstract

Working within CDC's National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities' Division of Human Development and Disability, the mission of the Disability and Health Team is to promote the health, well-being, independence, productivity, and full participation in society by people with disabilities. Program activities include assessing and monitoring the prevalence of disability in the United States; assessing the health status of people with disabilities; describing the risk factors and costs associated with secondary conditions and poor health; developing health promotion interventions to reduce secondary health issues and reduce disparities between people with and without disabilities; evaluate the effectiveness and cost of health interventions; offering training to health professionals who are interested in the field of disability and public health; and supporting conferences to facilitate and stimulate dialogue, disseminate and exchange information, establish research and policy priorities, and outline and undertake next steps.
