National Center for Disease Control and Public Health (NCDC&PH) is designated as a central Agency for public health. The history of the institution takes its origin from 1937, when a Georgian Plague Station was established. After regaining independence the Georgian Plague Station was transformed into the Research Center for Especially Dangerous Pathogens in 1992 and following reform of the Sanitary Epidemiological System in 1995 it was legally established as National Center for Disease Control. Further major reorganizations took place in 2007 and 2010 by assuming functions of a medical statistics and public health department.
