With staff posted in Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad, CDC is partnering with Indian institutions in a wide variety of bilateral and multilateral programs.  CDC, in collaboration with the Government of India, has established the Global Disease Detection Regional Center, including implementation of field epidemiology training. CDC also supports polio eradication efforts, control of other vaccine-preventable diseases, and the elimination of lymphatic filariasis. CDC provides technical support for the surveillance and control of a variety of infectious diseases, including tuberculosis, malaria, and high-hazard viral pathogens. Under President Bush's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), CDC also supports the Indian Government's response to HIV/AIDS. Finally, CDC is involved with research, training and strategy for non-communicable diseases, in areas such as environmental and occupational health, injury prevention, tobacco use, and birth defect prevention.
