iREACH Program

REACH (Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health) is a national program administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to reduce racial and ethnic health disparities.

AIM has partnered with CDC to engage and support participating REACH organizations in their efforts to address racial and ethnic disparities related to COVID-19 and flu vaccination coverage.

Through this partnership—known as iREACH—recipients plan and carry out local, culturally appropriate programs to address racial and ethnic disparities in immunization coverage among Black/African American, Latino, Asian, American Indian, and Pacific Island/Alaska Native communities.

AIM provides a platform for REACH recipients to store and share materials, as well as facilitate communication with and between organizations. AIM also provides opportunities for support, collaboration among REACH recipients, coaching, and learning focused on navigating implementation challenges and sharing successes and promising practices.
