The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the Federal agency responsible for disease and injury prevention. The agency also focuses on prevention of disability and secondary conditions. As the Nation's prevention agency CDC's vision for the 21st century is "Healthy People in a Healthy World" reflecting the agency's concern that people's health is important both nationally and internationally and that the environment is critical to health in the future. Approximately 772 projects were funded in fiscal year 2001. Examples of the funded projects include: behavioral risk factor surveillance system (BRFS), national program of cancer registries, population based surveillance of fetal alcohol syndrome, grants for radiation studies and research, public health conference support grant program, fatality assessment and control evaluation, surveillance of elevated blood levels in adults, and oral health and epilepsy program activities. The same is anticipated for fiscal years 2002 and 2003. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the federal agency that has responsibility for prevention and monitoring of oral disease. This program announcement addresses the Healthy People 2010 priority areas of Oral Health (Chapter 21), Public Health Infrastructure (Chapter 23), and Educational and Community-Based Programs (Chapter 7). The purpose of this program is to establish, strengthen and expand the capacity of States, territories, and tribes to plan, implement and evaluate oral disease prevention and health promotion programs. These programs may address dental caries (tooth decay), periodontal disease, oral and pharyngeal cancers, and other oral conditions considered to be public health problems. In FY 2001, five states (Arkansas, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, and New York), and one territory (Palau) received support under this program announcement.
