The Australian Government is establishing an Australian Centre for Disease Control (CDC) to improve Australia's ongoing response to current and emerging public health emergencies.
We released this discussion paper to guide the development of the purpose, scope and functions of the CDC as part of a targeted consultation process. This discussion paper is for information only, with submissions already being sought through a separate process, which concluded in December 2022.
Feedback from the consultation process has been independently summarised into a CDC stakeholder consultation report. Updates on the establishment of the CDC can be found on the Australian CDC webpage.
