Wisconsin Immunization Program
To eliminate vaccine preventable disease through immunization.
The Wisconsin Division of Public Health Immunization Program, in
partnership and collaboration with local partners, strives to
eliminate the transmission of vaccine preventable disease through
effective immunization programs and outbreak control measures.
Utilizing best practice strategies and evidence-based programming,
the steps to achieve this mission include:
- Improving the effectiveness of immunization delivery
- Increasing immunization access for all.
- Identifying and eliminating racial, ethnic and other
- Protecting the community through high immunization rates.
Nationwide, immunization programs are held accountable to reach state
and federal immunization goals and outcomes as defined in various
documents including Healthy
People 2020, State Health Plan 2020, the continuing grant guidance from CDC, and the Immunization
Program Operations Manual (IPOM) (PDF, 351 KB).
The complexity of cross-referencing these materials and resources as
well as being held accountable for both federal and state immunization
objectives, while engaging local public health partners and meeting
local public health goals through the
Community Health Improvement Process (CHIP)
, has underscored the need for the development of a framework to achieve
defined quality improvement goals and outcomes at multiple levels
through a continuous quality improvement (CQI) initiative. The CQI
framework (PDF, 112 KB) has been
developed within the context of the public
health core functions (PDF, 11.6 KB), essential
services (PDF, 10.9 KB), and overarching
goals (PDF, 16.6 KB).
Continual reduced or level funding makes it difficult to achieve all
defined goals and outcomes as outlined by these documents. Prioritizing
high leverage programmatic activities utilizing data
and evidence-based practices within the context of this CQI framework
enables the program to maximize programmatic outcomes and improve the
health of Wisconsin citizens.
