Interactive data visualizations of antibiotic use and resistance in North America and Europe
Objective | Comprehensive | Practical
The Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP) was founded with the objective of using research to support better decision-making in health policy. The CDDEP team employs a range of expertise—including economics, epidemiology, disease modeling, risk analysis, and statistics—to produce actionable, policy-oriented studies on malaria, antibiotic resistance, disease control priorities, environmental health, alcohol and tobacco, and various other diseases.
Many CDDEP projects are global in scope, spanning Africa, Asia, and North America. The strength of CDDEP derives from its researchers’ experience in addressing country and region-specific health problems, as well as truly global challenges, while recognizing the circumstances in which the answers must fit. The outcomes of individual projects go beyond the usual models to inspire new strategies for analysis, and innovative approaches are shared through publications and presentations focusing specifically on methodology.
Founded in 2009 as a center of Resources for the Future, CDDEP is an independent non-profit organization. With headquarters in Washington D.C. and offices in New Delhi, CDDEP currently employs 20 full-time staff members and relies on a distinguished team of academics and policy analysts around the world.
