For more than 60 years, CDC has been dedicated to protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury, and disability. The CDC has extensive experience dealing with domestic abuse, and has resources that can help identify and prevent violence. It also refers people to a 24-hour national hotline for abuse victims.
