In partnership with the CDC Foundation, Mathematica is serving as a content manager for a vaccine and flu resource hub to increase uploads and engagement by community based organizations and manage the accuracy and relevance of the hub’s content.
The CDC Foundation enlisted Mathematica as a partner on this project to strengthen community based organizations’ outreach and engagement activities by increasing access to accurate, evidence-based resources and tools.
This project is part of the CDC Foundation’s Partnering for Vaccine Equity Program which aims to reduce racial and ethnic disparities around vaccination and develop partnerships to drive community-level action to support vaccination in Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. The overall aim is to support effective community outreach centered on communities of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) in order to share accurate, culturally appropriate information about COVID-19 and influenza vaccines and to link adults to vaccine services.
Mathematica’s role is to help solicit, collect, and curate content, oversee the content review process, ensure quality maintenance and improvement on the resource hub, and conduct evaluations and reporting on the hub.
One hundred percent of the funding for this effort is made possible through a subaward of $1,166,877 from the CDC Foundation with a cooperative agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) totaling $25,660,048 for the Partnering for Vaccine Equity program.
