AAP Institute for Healthy Childhood Weight- $100,000-$1 Million


A new initiative of the AAP - its goal is to empower pediatricians and other health-related professionals, families and children to better prevent, assess and treat obesity and its co-morbidities by strengthening the partnership between the Institute and families to find and navigate their individual pathway to healthy active living.

  • Gold Supporter: $1 Million
  • Silver Supporter: $500,000
  • Program Specific Sponsors: $100,000

Community Access to Child Health (CATCH)- $150,000-$400,000
The Community Access to Child Health (CATCH) Program is a national initiative of the AAP that increases children’s access to medical homes or specific health services.  CATCH achieves this by supporting pediatricians and communities who are involved in collaborative community-based efforts for child health. Through the CATCH Program, pediatricians have identified promising practices that work in their individual communities.  CATCH funding frequently leads to the development and evaluation of sustainable projects that can be replicated in other communities.

Helping Babies Breathe- $125,000 per country

Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) is an educational program to teach neonatal resuscitation techniques in resource-limited areas. The curriculum is designed for use as part of a coordinated educational approach to neonatal care and can be effectively combined with other curricula. It can be locally taught to birth attendants in diverse venues and locations. A key concept of HBB is The Golden Minute. Within one minute of birth, a baby should be breathing well or should be ventilated with at bag and mask. The Golden Minute identifies the steps that a birth attendant must take immediately after birth to evaluate the baby and stimulate breathing.

Friends of Children Immunization Fund

The AAP is working with vaccine manufacturers, government agencies, private foundations, corporations, physicians and parents on an AAP-branded campaign to increase vaccination levels and decrease infectious disease outbreaks across the USA.  The AAP is well-established as a coalition-builder in this field and will create a national, multi-channel public education program to promote the safety and efficacy of childhood vaccines to parents and caregivers.  The Academy and its partners are building a $25 million campaign fund to promote the benefits of a population in which everyone is fully protected against vaccine-preventable diseases.

Kids & Media: E-Learning Course- $100,000

We seek to develop and provide an online course on Kids and Media. Upon completion of the course, pediatricians will have a greater understanding of the impact of media on children's physical and mental health. They will be equipped to implement important screening for media use in their practice. They will be able to provide appropriate media-related anticipatory guidance to youth and their families about how to practically manage the omnipresent role media plays in their lives. We seek to provide tools and information so that negative impacts of media can be minimized and the opportunities for learning and engagement through media can be optimized.
