16th National Conference for Immunization Coalitions and Partnerships

April 9-11, 2024 • Philadelphia PA


Expanding Alliances & Advancing Equity

2024 NCICP

The 16th National Conference for Immunization Coalitions and Partnerships (NCICP), formerly known as the National Conference on Immunization and Health Coalitions, is the only conference solely dedicated to collaboration and partnership as a way to improve immunization uptake, educate our communities, and prevent the spread of disease. The conference is an engine to improve immunizations and public health issues by sharing successful strategies that strengthen the work our coalitions and partnerships do.

2024 Host & Location

The Pennsylvania Immunization Coalition (PAIC) is proud to host the 2024 NCICP conference. Our statewide work increases access to immunizations for vaccine-preventable diseases through support of local immunization coalitions. We warmly welcome our colleagues and partners from across the country to learn from each other as we share our successes and brainstorm solutions to shared challenges.

Welcome to Philadelphia

Philadelphia is a combination of two Greek words: Phileo (love) and Adelphos (brother). Named by its founder William Penn, who envisioned a city of religious tolerance where no one would be persecuted, Philadelphia is considered to be the birthplace of the United States.

Our city is known for the Liberty Bell and Benjamin Franklin, but we have much more to offer. You’ll find amazing cuisine, museums, and parks on every corner. It’s easy to navigate the city’s organized streets and avenues by foot, bike, and bus.

The 16th NCICP will focus on engaging communities, expanding alliances, and advancing equity. Submit an abstract in support of the conference tracks below.  The deadline for submission is December 1, 2023.  You will be notified by December 18, 2023.

The conference will be built around three tracks:

Growing & Sustaining Coalitions

During COVID-19, many coalitions received additional federal or state funds for vaccine activities and nearly every community saw new groups willing to help increase vaccine confidence and access. As we move out of the immediate pandemic, how can coalitions maintain their funding, expand their partnerships, and keep new partners at the table? NCICP is welcoming abstracts on these and other topics that will ensure the sustainability of immunization coalitions for years to come.

Innovation: New Partnerships & Strategies

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in an unprecedented level of research on which messages and messengers increase a person’s intent to vaccinate. Unfortunately, the politicization of the pandemic also lead to an increase in those who are staunchly opposed to vaccination. NCICP is welcoming abstracts that address vaccine hesitancy, confidence, and the wide spectrum of communication needs in between, with a particular interest in topics that address the effectiveness of trusted messengers and channels.

Advocacy for All

Vaccines have long enjoyed bipartisan, bicameral support. In recent years, however, universal political support for vaccines has declined, particularly among the states. The U.S. is at a critical juncture in which federal and state policy could make or break better access to, and confidence in, vaccinations. NCICP is welcoming abstracts on the policies and advocacy efforts necessary to ensure everyone in the U.S. has the ability to remain safe from vaccine-preventable diseases.
