Michigan Core Violence & Injury Prevention Program (CORE VIPP)
CORE Violence and Injury Prevention Program is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) with the goal of preventing violence and injury in the state of Michigan. Injuries are the leading cause of death for persons aged 1-49 in Michigan. CORE VIPP is working to decrease injuries and violence by implementing evidence-based programs and strategies.
Michigan Core VIPP is focusing on 4 areas:
- Child Abuse/Child Neglect (CAN)
- Motor Vehicle Crashes (MVC)
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Intimate Partner/Sexual Violence (IPSV)
These four focus areas are of major public health concern, and this is reflected in the leading causes of death in Michigan.
