Organizations : Advocacy Groups
  • AVAC is the AIDS Vaccine Advocacy Coalition. The subhead of the organization's website, "Because the world could have an HIV vaccine," just about tells its story, but visit their pages anyway for an example of a very usable content-rich site.
  • Every Child By Two (ECBT) is a voluntary organization in the U.S. formed to raise awareness of the critical need for timely immunization and to foster a systematic way to immunize all of the country's children by the age of two.
  • The Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, works to increase immunization rates and prevent disease by creating and distributing educational materials for health professionals and the public that enhance the delivery of safe and effective immunization services. Its publications include NEEDLE TIPS and the Hepatitis B Coalition News, VACCINATE ADULTS!, and VACCINATE WOMEN, with a combined circulation of 400,000. IAC also maintains four Web sites and two listservs. The Immunization Action Coalition is a member of the Allied Vaccine Group.
  • The Immunization Division of the State of Texas Department of Health maintains an informative web page. The icon, Immunize Your Little Texan By Two, the "Shots Across Texas" logo that links to information about federal funds for local coalitions, is particularly attractive. This is one of the better-realized government websites in the vaccine field.
  • NPI, the National Partnership for Immunization, promotes immunization across the human life span. NPI is a joint program of National Healthy Mothers, the Healthy Babies Coalition and the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases.
  • National Coalition for Adult Immunization, composed of more than 90 U.S. medical and health care associations, advocacy groups, voluntary organizations, vaccine manufacturers, and government health agencies, aims at improving the immunization status of adults to levels specified by the U.S. Public Health Service in Healthy People 2000.
  • PKIDs is a parent group whose highest priority is to seek the best care for their own children and to prevent other children from being harmed by infectious diseases. PKIDs is funded by parents, individuals, foundations and corporations, including unrestricted grants from pharmaceutical companies. PKIDs is a member of the Allied Vaccine Group.
  • The Albert B. Sabin Vaccine Institute (SVI) is a nonprofit public organization that promotes the rapid development and worldwide distribution of vaccines. SVI focuses on research, public policy issues, and public awareness of the benefits of vaccination. Their Web site explains the basic history and science of vaccination, and describes current programs such as their hookworm vaccine initiative.
