What is the AFIX Standards Guide?
The Assessment, Feedback, Incentive, and eXchange (AFIX) Standards are an outgrowth of the Immunization Program Operations Manual (IPOM). 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).
Level 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.
A Level II Program is recommended and focuses on improving existing protocols and increasing activity, as well as developing plans for additional objectives and goals. Grantees are encouraged to consider these recommendations as part of their AFIX programs.
