The road to integration & public health with children


Found a reminder of how long we have been working on integration – specifically for children’s health. Question- what happened to this movement that we forgot about the public health aspect? Or is there another hiding out there?

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.

The national program office was based at the Task Force for Child Survival and Development in Atlanta, with guidance from the program’s National Advisory Committee, the national program office gave grants ranging from $300,000 to $700,000 to 16 projects

Here is an overview and the results from the program:
