The goals of the program are to assess the public health impact of emerging and re-emerging infections and to evaluate methods for their prevention and control.

The Connecticut Emerging Infections Program was recently awarded an additional 5 years of funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the period January 1, 2012 – December 31, 2016.
