Injury Center Success Story
Johns Hopkins Children's Safety Centers
Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy
"We have proven methods to prevent injuries to children. What we, as public health and health care professionals must do is find innovative ways to disseminate the information and products that will save lives. Community partnerships, improved communication, and safety resource centers are promising strategies to help achieve this goal."
- Andrea Gielen, ScD, ScM, Professor and Director
Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core VIPP)
Injury is a leading killer in all 50 states. However, due to variations in geography, weather conditions, and population groups, injury problems often vary between states. Through the Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core VIPP), CDC supports grantee partners to build capacity related to the prevention and control of injuries and to develop or strengthen their injury surveillance programs, particularly those with a focus on traumatic brain injury (TBI).
National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS)
NVDRS is a state-based surveillance system that links data from law enforcement, coroners and medical examiners, vital statistics, and crime laboratories to assist each participating state in designing and implementing tailored prevention and intervention efforts. NVDRS provides data on violence trends at national and regional levels; each state can access all of these important data elements from one central database.
Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) Program
Sexual violence, including rape, is preventable. Recognizing this, Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act in 1994. This landmark legislation established the Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal of the RPE program is to strengthen sexual violence prevention efforts. It operates in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and six U.S. territories.
Academic Centers for Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention
The National Academic Centers for Excellence (ACEs) on Youth Violence Prevention connect academic and community resources to study and create lasting ways to prevent youth violence.
Injury Control Research Centers (ICRCs)
Injury Control Research Centers conduct research in all three core phases of injury control (prevention, acute care, and rehabilitation) and serve as training centers as well as information centers for the public. Research design in these centers is interdisciplinary and incorporates the fields of medicine, engineering, epidemiology, law, and criminal justice, behavioral and social sciences, biostatistics, public health, and biomechanics.
Residential Fire-related Injury Prevention
CDC’s Injury Center funds 16 states to deliver a Smoke Alarm Installation and Fire Safety Education (SAIFE) program. For each year of funding, state health departments solicit participation from at least two eligible communities.
