EPIC Partners

CDC’s Emergency Partners Information Connection (EPIC) works with a variety of national and international partner organizations including community- and faith-based organizations, professional associations, nongovernmental organizations, and government agencies. Some of our partners also operate on a regional, local, or community level.

Our partners uniquely understand the needs of the people they serve. These organizations rely on their relationships to help us distribute emergency public health information from CDC during times of planning or crisis. Our partners also provide us with valuable insights into what information the people they serve need, and how best to deliver it. Sharing information with our partners allows us to help people stay safer and healthier during a public health emergency, especially some of the people most vulnerable to public health threats.

Please explore below to learn more about some of the EPIC partners. Organizations interested in becoming EPIC partners should email epic@cdc.gov.
