Unaccompanied Children at the Border

CDC understands that people may have concerns about issues related to unaccompanied children from Central America who are crossing into the United States. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are leading the humanitarian response, which includes housing, feeding, and providing necessary medical evaluation and treatment to protect public health. In support of HHS and DHS activities, CDC is providing consultation on medical screening, surveillance, and public health response when requested.
