The CDC Prevention Guidelines Database

The Prevention Guidelines Database is a comprehensive compendium of all of the official guidelines and recommendations published by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the prevention of diseases, injuries, and disabilities. This compendium was developed to allow public health practitioners and others to quickly access the full set of CDC's guidelines from a single point, regardless of where they were originally published. This database was developed with financial support from the Information Network for Public Health Officials project. Select About the CDC Prevention Guidelines Database for more information.
