Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

As a non-profit organization established in 1973, NFID is dedicated to providing trusted and timely information for the public and healthcare professionals on the burden, causes, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases across the lifespan.

Primary goals of the organization include:
-Enhance Educational Impact
-Amplify Messaging to Build Awareness
-Drive Organizational Excellence

Additional details included in NFID Strategic Plan at www.nfid.org/strategic-plan.

Strategies include live and online professional education, public outreach, media relations (traditional and social), and partner collaborations

Capabilities include wide range of expertise in infectious diseases and ability to deliver: comprehensive consumer–focused information through population/disease targeted webpages, social media, and print materials; as well as healthcare professional education through annual events, including Clinical Vaccinology Courses and Annual Conference on Vaccinology Research, and online education including monthly webinars.

While NFID has made significant progress in certain areas including the development of a universal recommendation for annual flu vaccination for all individuals age 6 months and older, there is still much to be done to meet public health goals for all vaccine-preventable diseases. The vision of NFID is to achieve healthier lives through effective prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases.
