Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases:"The Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases, National Center for Infectious Diseases (NCID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was established in the early 1950s as the Disease Ecology Section of CDC to deal with arbovirus encephalitis viruses in the western United States. In 1967, the unit moved to its present location in Fort Collins, Colorado, and in 1974, it became the Division of Vector-Borne Viral Diseases. In 1989, the division was given the responsibility of developing a national Lyme disease program and was renamed Division of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases to reflect its responsibilities for Lyme disease and other zoonotic bacterial infections."

Hospital Infections Program:"The Hospital Infections Program (HIP) of the National Center for Infectious Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is the focus for information, surveillance, investigation, prevention, and control of nosocomial infections for the Public Health Service, state and local health departments, hospitals, and professional organizations in the United States and around the world. Nosocomial infections affect approximately 2million patients annually in acute care facilities in the United States ata direct annual patient care cost of approximately $3.5 billion. Studies indicate that one-third of nosocomial infections can be prevented by well-organized infection control programs, yet only 6%-9% are actually prevented. Addressing the discrepancy between what can be prevented and what is being prevented is a major focus for HIP, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations, professional organizations, and hospital infection control personnel in the 1990s."

Organism Specific Information:

Group B Streptococcal Disease (GBS):"GBS is the most common cause of sepsis (blood infection) and meningitis (infection of the fluid and lining surrounding the brain) in newborns. GBS is a frequent cause of newborn pneumonia and is more common than other, better known, newborn problems such as rubella, congenital syphilis, and spina bifida. Before prevention methods were widely used, approximately 8,000 babies in the United States would get GBS disease each year. One of every 20 babies with GBS disease dies from infection. Babies that survive, particularly those who have meningitis, may have long-term problems, such as hearing or vision loss or learning disabilities."
