  • Alternative Title:
    Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program
  • Description:
    Injury is a leading cause of death across all 50 states. CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (Injury Center) is committed to protecting people against needless violence, preventable injuries, and the life-threatening harm and hurt they cause. The Injury Center is the only U.S. federal agency that deals exclusively with injury and violence prevention in non-occupational settings. It leads a coordinated public health approach to tackling this critical health and safety issue, and ensures that people have access to the best information and resources to help them live life to its fullest potential. The Injury Center provides funding and technical assistance to states through its Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core VIPP). The program supports 20 state health departments to strengthen capacity to collect and use data for a better understanding of local injury issues, and to protect their residents by putting science into action to save lives and prevent injuries.
