Objective of this Request for Proposal
AIM is collecting and analyzing lessons learned and promising practices in the field of immunization from the COVID-19 pandemic. Promising practices identified will focus on the different approaches taken by jurisdictions throughout the pandemic response. Focus areas of interest include communications, health equity, adult immunization, mis/disinformation, media relations, political landscape, etc. Additionally, lessons can be examined through the lens of each jurisdiction’s health department organization, such as centralized, de-centralized, local, and territorial.
AIM seeks to conduct an environmental scan of existing lessons learned reports from:
- Jurisdictions across the country (federal, state, territorial, local level)
- Organizations similar to AIM
- University Think Tanks or Research Organizations
- Academia or other experts
The environmental scan will inform a report of promising practices, common themes, areas of potential policy, and future research ideas.
The Association of Immunization Managers (AIM) is a 501(c)(3), membership association that was founded in 1999. AIM members direct the immunization programs in the 64 federally funded state, territorial, and local public health agencies (50 states, 8 territories/federated states, 6 large cities). Membership is limited to these 64 state, local, and territorial public health immunization programs and association activities are focused on the success of the 64 program managers and their program staff. AIM also represents its members in national forums, advisory committees, and research projects—providing a collective voice for immunization program interests. AIM has 24 full-time employees and is funded through a federal cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and several private, unrestricted educational grants as well as membership dues.
