What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Because rates of adolescent vaccination remain lower than desired in the United States, particularly for human papillomavirus (HPV), the 2nd dose of Meningococcal ACWY (MenACWY), and Meningococcal B (MenB) vaccines, Unity Consortium aims to target and promote adolescent immunization platforms through a discussion between the patient/parent and the health care provider (HCP) to ultimately address significant gaps present in adolescent and young adult preventive health.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Adolescent Immunization Action Week (AIAW)

Adolescent Immunization Action Week (#AIAW23) is a national movement to support parents, healthcare providers, and adolescents to keep adolescents up to date on their immunizations.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents
Parents

A comprehensive initiative to support healthcare providers and organizations to make concise, confident and consistent vaccine recommendations in their discussions with parents, adolescents and young adults. A "3Cs" recommendation is shown to improve the acceptance rate for all CDC/ACIP-recommended vaccines for adolescents and young adults. The 3Cs approach features presumptive, bundled recommendations for adolescent vaccines. Research indicates that healthcare providers are the most important source of vaccine information for parents, and most influential in parents’ decision to vaccinate their adolescents.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents
Parents

A comprehensive program supporting healthcare providers with the16-year-old well-visit and the recommended vaccines. The program includes ready to use tools and resources for healthcare provider organizations to integrate into their practices including case studies and template communications.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents
Parents

FACTSinnated is a podcast for anyone interested in adolescent and young adult health, including parents, adolescents, young adults and healthcare providers. The podcast format is concise, engaging with accessible interviews that highlight credible, evidence-based vaccine information. Each episode features a nationally recognized expert or individual with unique experience to explore misconceptions surrounding adolescent and young adult vaccines.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

A forum for parents to share advice and insights to support Unity’s mission to improve adolescent and young adult preventive health, with a focus on immunization. Participants take part in advisory group meetings every 2 – 3 months over a one-year period to guide Unity’s strategies and programs.

Charting impact

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

Coverage is 90% or greater nationally recommended vaccines for adolescents and young adults.

Unity Consortium provides action-oriented leadership, innovation and education on preventive health and immunization for adolescents and young adults. Adolescents and young adults are an often-overlooked cohort for preventative health and immunization, making them an important, and vulnerable, target population for our organization. By partnering with diverse representatives from academia, public and private sectors provide strategic guidance and input to ultimately amplify the Unity “voice” through member and liaison networks. These include experts in immunization, policy, vaccine confidence, communications, marketing, and study design, amongst other relevant fields. Unity’s Teen and Mom Advisory Councils provide direct input and feedback on Unity, member and liaison priorities, strategies, resources and initiatives. Finally, Unity has compiled an extensive resource library in engaging formats addressing immunization barriers for adolescents and young adults, parents and HCPs, along with a cadre of scientifically proven interventions and initiatives to improve immunization rates.

Unity Consortium offers a unique value proposition made possible by its broad and diverse members and liaisons and unique partnerships with public and private sector organizations. Unity brings deep understanding of adolescent and young adult preventive care and immunization through its nationally recognized expertise and experience, ongoing processes for listening to the needs of parents, adolescents and young adults and insights gained via Unity’s Teen and Mom Advisory Councils and market research. Unity programs are founded in a comprehensive market understanding of evidence-based solutions to improve immunization rates amongst adolescents and young adults.

Unity Consortium has accomplished an increased level of awareness and action amongst adolescents and young adults (AYAs), parents, and health care providers and other organizations who serve AYAs. Unity’s accomplishments with programs and educational efforts and calls to action for getting AYAs up to date on their recommended vaccinations is evidenced through Unity’s program performance. This includes Adolescent Immunization Action Week (AIAW) which was established in 2022 with a reach of 45 million and executed for in 2023 with higher reach made possible by broad public and private sector participation.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
