Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists
The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) was organized in the USA in the early 1950s in response to the need to have at least one person in each state and territory responsible for public health surveillance of diseases and conditions of public health significance. Since then, CSTE has grown to include members from every U.S. state and territory, Canada, and Great Britain.
Additional recommended knowledge
The surveillance and epidemiology of infectious diseases, chronic diseases and conditions, and environmental health concerns are priority areas for CSTE. Members serve as special topic consultants for a broad range of public health concerns such as HIV/AIDS and vaccine-preventable diseases.
CSTE has worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Case Definitions for Public Health Surveillance and Chronic Disease Indicators.
