Proposed Project

    Emerging Infections Program--New--National Center for Emerging and 
Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Emerging Infections Programs (EIPs) are population-based 
centers of excellence established through a network of state health 
departments collaborating with academic institutions; local health 
departments; public health and clinical laboratories; infection control 
professionals; and healthcare providers. EIPs assist in local, state, 
and national efforts to prevent, control, and monitor the public health 
impact of infectious diseases. Various parts of the EIP have received 
separate OMB clearance (OMB Control No. 0920-0802, ABCs, and OMB 
Control No. 0920-0852, All Age Influenza Hospitalization Surveillance); 
however this request seeks to have these core EIP activities under one 
clearance.
    Activities of the EIPs fall into the following general categories: 
(1) Active surveillance; (2) applied public health epidemiologic and 
laboratory activities; (3) implementation and evaluation of pilot 
prevention/intervention projects; and (4) flexible response to public 
health emergencies. Activities of the EIPs are designed to: (1) Address 
issues that the EIP network is particularly suited to investigate; (2) 
maintain sufficient flexibility for emergency response and new problems 
as they arise; (3) develop and evaluate public health interventions to 
inform public health policy and treatment guidelines; (4) incorporate 
training as a key function; and (5) prioritize projects that lead 
directly to the prevention of disease.
    The total estimated burden is 12,319 hours. There is no cost to 
respondents other than their time.
