CDC's Winnable Battles Initiative

To keep pace with emerging public health challenges and to address the leading causes of death and disability, CDC initiated an effort to achieve measurable impact quickly in a few targeted areas. CDC's Winnable Battles are public health priorities with large-scale impact on health and with known, effective strategies to address them.


The current Winnable Battles have been chosen based on the magnitude of the health problems and our ability to make significant progress in improving outcomes. By identifying priority strategies and clear targets and by working closely with our public health partners, we can make significant progress in reducing health disparities and the overall health burden from these diseases and conditions.


The winnable battle areas are:

  • Food safety
  • Global immunization
  • Healthcare-associated infections
  • HIV in the U.S.
  • Lymphatic Filariasis in the Americas
  • Motor vehicle injuries
  • Nutrition, physical activity, and obesity
  • Mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS globally
  • Teen pregnancy
  • Tobacco
