The People’s CDC is a coalition of public health practitioners, scientists, healthcare workers, educators, advocates and people from all walks of life working to reduce the harmful impacts of COVID-19.

We provide guidance and policy recommendations to governments and the public on COVID-19, disseminating evidence-based updates that are grounded in equity, public health principles, and the latest scientific literature.

Working alongside community organizations, we are building collective power and centering equity as we work together to end the pandemic.

The People’s CDC is volunteer-run and independent of partisan political and corporate interests and includes anonymous local health department and other government employees.

Organizational Structure

The PCDC operates as an inverted pyramid with autonomous teams being the driving force of producing content. The different working teams are at the top of the pyramid being supported by General Membership and the Coordinating Committee that provides infrastructure support for the coalition.
