CDC partners awarded for program excellence in work with GHVI

August 21, 2013


The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) have selected the CDC Global Road Safety Team in the Division of Unintentional Injury Prevention (National Center for Injury Prevention and Control) for the 2012 International Excellence in Program Delivery Award for the team’s work with AIP Foundation’s Global Helmet Vaccine Initiative (GHVI).

CDC has been an important partner for AIP Foundation and GHVI in the area of surveillance and evaluation, building capacity in public health, and global networks supporting the Decade of Action.  CDC’s Global Road Safety Team began its partnership with AIP Foundation to expand and scale-up GHVI in Cambodia and Uganda in 2010. Through high-quality and mixed-method evaluation designs, the group ensures that GHVI activities in Cambodia and Uganda are driven by data and effectively delivered to the target audiences.
