What is the AFIX Standards
Assessment, Feedback, Incentive, and eXchange (AFIX)
Standards are an outgrowth of the Immunization
Program Operations Manual (IPOM). The IPOM
presents information to programs on “what an
effective immunization program looks like.”
The AFIX Standards have a similar purpose but focus
specifically on the AFIX process. The AFIX Standards
are organized in levels, and within each level there
are 6 program components (program operations, assessment,
feedback, incentives and exchange of information
and program evaluation). Each level builds upon the
successful completion of the previous level’s
I of the AFIX Standards provides structure
on how to develop, implement and evaluate an effective
AFIX program that will meet all grant requirements.
The Standards describe essential elements for all
AFIX programs; they are also flexible to allow for
grantees to address situations unique to their locale.
AFIX Standards are designed to encourage but not
require grantees to continue to improve beyond a
fundamentally sound and effective AFIX program. Levels
II and III provide guidance for exceeding
the requirements for an effective AFIX program and
focus on developing new and creative collaborative
relationships with other organizations and immunization
