An opportunity is available with the Division of Violence Prevention (DVP), within the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Field Epidemiology and Prevention Branch at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), such as child abuse and exposure to home and community violence, are common and increase the risk for almost all health and social difficulties, such as substance abuse, depression, cancer, and diabetes. Preventing ACEs is a priority for the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control/Division of Violence Prevention (DVP). DVP leads surveillance, research, and programmatic activities to prevent ACEs, child abuse and neglect, sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and other forms of violence. Since 2007, CDC has partnered with 24 countries to implement a nationally representative Violence Against Children and Youth Surveys (VACS) to assess the prevalence, risk and protective factors, and burden of violence against children and youth including HIV, sexual-risk taking behaviors, and mental health and to provide data to launch violence prevention programs and child protection systems. VACS data yield valuable information on the prevalence of ACEs and their health impacts globally in low- and middle-income countries. These data inform evidence-driven strategies to prevent violence.
Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will be trained in the following activities:
