The All Kids Count II program, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) from 1998–2000, sought to make 16 immunization registry projects based in local, county, and state health departments fully operational by January 1, 2000. The program also sought to develop a long-term policy to ensure registries are implemented and sustained nationwide. The program built on progress made under All Kids Count Phase I, 1992–1997, an RWJF program to begin the development of registries.
