In 2016, KCDC underwent organizational restructuring by changing the General Affairs Department to the Planning and Coordination Department and made efforts to operate a call center by establishing an Administration and an Office of Communication.

In its approximately 70-year history since Korea’s liberation, KCDC, with Osong Biovalley as momentum for a new beginning, has been acquiring national-level medical and bioscience knowledge as resources and leading national disease control studies in response to future environmental changes, such as climate change. In addition, it pioneers global public health studies by promoting close international cooperation and exchanges. In 2016, KCDC restructured its organization by changing the General Affairs Department to the Planning and Coordination Department and established an Administration Team and an Office of Communication in order to strengthen cooperation among its subsidiary centers and improve its information competencies. At the same time, KCDC is dedicating the utmost efforts to overcoming the crisis of infectious diseases at an earlier phase by swiftly and consistently providing correct information to the public in times of crisis.
