About the Program:
IA² is honored to have been awarded an 8-month grant from the CDC Foundation, which is working in partnership with the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases to support community-based organizations to reduce vaccine hesitancy and increase adult flu and COVID-19 vaccination uptake across racial and ethnic populations currently experiencing disparities.
With this support, IA² joins the CDC’s P4VE partner network of more than 540 health departments, federally qualified and community health centers, and non-profits working to improve equity in adult immunizations.
The International Association for Indigenous Aging (IA²) is a non-profit tribal serving organization that works to 1) Ensure the provision of appropriate and quality services and resources for indigenous elders; 2) Expand opportunities for elders’ involvement in community participation, health, and disease education, volunteerism/civic engagement, elder justice and consumer protection; 3) Enhance the protection of the rights of elders including their freedom from abuse and neglect and their right to autonomy; 4) Educate the public, policymakers and practitioners about the status of indigenous elders; and, 5) advocacy to improve the status of indigenous elders.
