About NFIDThe National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) is a non-profit, tax-exempt (501c3) organization founded in 1973 and dedicated to educating the public and healthcare professionals about the causes, treatment, and prevention of infectious diseases. NFID established the Childhood Influenza Immunization Coalition ( CIIC) in 2007 to help increase awareness and education about pediatric influenza and benefits of immunization. CIIC includes more than 30 of the nation's leading public health, medical, patient, and parent groups that continue to address and improve influenza vaccination rates among children. For more information about CIIC, visit www.preventchildhoodinfluenza.org.
CIIC is made possible through unrestricted educational grants to NFID from Novartis and Sanofi Pasteur. NFID's policies prohibit funders from controlling program content. To view NFID's policies for unrestricted educational grants, visit http://www.nfid.org/info/grantspolicy.html.
