FOA Title: Evaluation of Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core VIPP)external icon
The purpose of the program is to work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in its evaluation of the Core VIPP program for the benefit of the to be awarded Core VIPP grantees. This project has three overall goals: (1) to assess state injury and violence prevention plans for completeness, measurability, and effectiveness; (2) develop a tool to support state health department planning and evaluation efforts; and (3) evaluate the effectiveness of the Core VIPP cooperative agreement. Through the evaluation of the Core VIPP, CDC plans to improve state health department program and policy activities. The ultimate goal of the Core VIPP is to assist State Health Departments (SHDs) to build and/or maintain effective delivery systems for dissemination, implementation and evaluation of best practice programs and policies. This includes support for general capacity building of SHDs and their local partners, as well as strategy specific capacity building for the implementation of direct best practice interventions (older adult falls and child injury).
