Core State Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core SVIPP)
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (Injury Center) funds 23 state health departments through the Core State Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core SVIPP- CE16-1602). Core SVIPP helps states implement, evaluate and disseminate strategies that address the most pressing injury and violence issues including: child abuse and neglect, traumatic brain injury, motor vehicle crash injury and death, and intimate partner/sexual violence. The program builds on the infrastructure established through previous iterations of the Core VIPP (CE11-1101). The overall purpose of the Core SVIPP is to: 1) decrease injury and violence related morbidity and mortality and 2) increase sustainability of injury prevention programs and practices.
