ABSTRACT

Building the Quarantine System   [open pdf - 132KB]

"Growing concern about the threat of importing infectious diseases through mobile populations, bioterrorism, animals, and cargo has prompted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to invest in building a Quarantine System that meets the needs of the 21st Century. As was evidenced in the response to SARS in 2003 and in planning for a possible pandemic, CDC's Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) provides leadership in coordinating a nationwide response to global infectious disease threats that may cross U.S. borders. DGMQ's Quarantine System provides the critical infrastructure necessary to support the all-hazards (any public health threat) preparedness activities going on across the United States and throughout the world."
