THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES

Advisers to the Nation on Science, Engineering and Medicine

The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. Dr. Bruce M. Alberts is president of the National Academy of Sciences.

The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964, under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autonomous in its administration and in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the federal government. The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education and research, and recognizes the superior achievements of engineers. Dr. Wm. A. Wulf is president of the National Academy of Engineering.

The Institute of Medicine was established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to secure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. The Institute acts under the responsibility given to the National Academy of Sciences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, upon its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Harvey V. Fineberg is president of the Institute of Medicine.

The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of science and technology with the Academy’s purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The Council is administered jointly by both Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Bruce M. Alberts and Dr. Wm. A. Wulf are chair and vice chair, respectively, of the National Research Council.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

The Institute of Medicine workshop on immunization finance was organized through the efforts of numerous health care organizations and health care providers throughout the state of California. We acknowledge in particular the logistical support and gracious hospitality of the faculty and staff of the School of Public Health at the University of California in Los Angeles, under the leadership of Dean Linda Rosenstock and the guidance and assistance of Karen Markus. Natalie Smith and John Dunajski from the Immunization Branch of the California State Department of Health provided valuable guidance in identifying expert resources throughout the state. Jonathan Fielding, Cheri Todoroff, and David Gambill from the Los Angeles County Department of Health, Sandra Ross from the San Diego County Department of Health, and Kristin Brusuelas from the National Immunization Program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did the same in pointing us toward experts in the Los Angeles and San Diego areas. Lynn Denton from the Texas Department of Health and Richard Butler from the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center also provided helpful assistance and support in preparing for the workshop.

Additional guidance was provided by the Pacific Business Group on Health, the California chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the California Medical Association, Michael Marcy from Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles, and Steve Baranov from Immunize LA Kids. Staff from the National Immunization Program of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta helped to identify immunization program directors and public health advisers throughout the state of California and also prepared data analyses and exhibits to inform the workshop discussions.

The Center for the Advancement of Distance Education at the University of Illinois provided on-site technical support in audiocasting the January 17 workshop to a national audience. An archival file of the speakers’ remarks and electronic slides can be found at the IOM website: www.iom.edu/iom/iomhome.nsf/pages/hcs+immunization+finance+dissemination.

Immunization is essential to disease prevention efforts in public health, but the nation's immunization system faces financing challenges that are affecting the delivery of services. A 2000 report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM), Calling the Shots: Immunization Finance Policies and Practices (IOM, 2000), pointed to the instability of the fundamental infrastructure that supports immunization programs throughout the United States, including unpredictable federal funding levels, growing financial burdens and operational complexities in immunization services, shortcomings in public- and private-sector investments in vaccine purchases and immunization programs, and fluctuations in coverage plans in the public and private health care sectors that create uncertainties regarding vaccine purchase and service delivery arrangements. In January 2002, health officials, public health experts, health care providers, health plan representatives, health care purchasers, and community leaders met at the University of California at Los Angeles to explore the implications of the IOM findings and recommendations for California in general and for Los Angeles and San Diego County in particular. The one-day workshop was the third in a series of four meetings organized by IOM with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to foster informed discussions about challenges for immunization finance and future financing strategies for immunization activities and the public health infrastructure that supports those activities.

This report of the Los Angeles workshop summarizes the findings of the IOM study, reviews progress in responding to the IOM recommendations at the federal level, and highlights continuing challenges in immunization finance for the nation and at the state and local levels in California.
