5.3.CDC Pledge

CDC pledges to the American people:

To provide an environment for intellectual and personal growth and integrity.
To base all public health decisions on the highest quality scientific data, openly and objectively derived.
To place the benefits to society above the benefits to the institution. Clearly this is not practiced by the Australian counterpart in the assessment of risk during thew 50s to 70s.
To treat all persons with dignity, honesty, and respect. For the Australian counterpart, questionable.
