The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) protects Americans from risks to their safety, health, and protection both at home and abroad. CDC helps populations and fights diseases whether the disease starts abroad or at home, is acute or chronic, and is intentional or not.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is the national focal point for applying and developing disease prevention and control, environmental health, health education programs, and health promotion with the goal of improving the health of Americans (Mission, Position, and Pledge| About | CDC, 2017).

Is it important for the individual ethical values be supported by the organization’s ethical values?
Individual ethical values should be supported by those of the organization so as to have an impact on employee morale, relationships with co-workers, reputation and retention. Furthermore, support of individual ethical values promotes adherence to ethics and motivates employees (Allender, Rector & Warner, 2013). A strong sense of professionalism can also be realized when organizations’ ethical values support those of individuals. Individuals can easily recognize the ethical implications of certain decisions as well as easily differentiate between what is wrong and right. Support of ethical values also promotes a culture of ethics among different individuals in an organization which further promotes loyalty and trust among stakeholders (Allender, Rector & Warner, 2013).
