Public Health

Enhance the Health Security of Our Nation

GDIT has been supporting public health for our citizens, service members and veterans for more than 4 decades. Our support ranges from medical surveillance for the United States Armed Forces through support to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in their mission to protect America from health, safety, and security threats, improving the lives of our Nation's communities and citizens.

GDIT is helping CDC achieve its mission with initiatives, such as direct mission support for surveillance and preparedness and response; developing state-of-the-art technical foundations for data modernization and advanced analytics; collaborating with State, Territorial, Local, and Tribal (STLT) partners; and driving innovation to promote positive change. Our STLT support includes public health emergency response work with the states of Arkansas and North Carolina, and the Indian Health Service (IHS) in their support of federal, tribal, and urban hospitals and clinics.

GDIT is enabling the Public Health Ecosystem of tomorrow, enabling public health professionals with the tools to promote health equity, respond to outbreaks, and apply predictive models that save lives and protect the public's health.
