Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System

by:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, otherwise referred to as CDC, is a United States Federal government agency operating under the Department of Health and Human Services that is largely accountable for safeguarding public health and safety through the acquisition of additional information that could lead to the improvement of health-related decisions.

The initiatives of the CDC are constantly geared towards the realization of their agency mission which is "to create the expertise, information, and tools that people and communities need to protect their health – through health promotion, prevention of disease, injury and disability, and preparedness for new health threats."

In line with this mission, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has established the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Program wherein it intends to provide financial and programmatic assistance to State Health Departments in the process of maintaining and expanding ways of collecting pertinent health data.

The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Program is a health tool that is used to collate significant data regarding health-related threats and strategies that could help improve the health and wellness of the American people.
