Programs & Initiatives

NAPNAP  is dedicated to providing a positive focus on meeting the needs of all children and families for the consistent provision of resources and evidence-based guidance in regard to immunizations and healthy habits that help to establish healthy behaviors for life.  The following are NAPNAP's programs that help meet this focus:  Pertussis Information Center, Hibdisease Information Center, Looking After Book Series, RB's Healthy Habits Activity Booklet and website (, collaboration with the National Honey Board, and our biannual publication: Ready, Set, Grow


As a result of evaluation of both NAPNAP/NAPNAP Foundation National Programs, Healthy Eating and Activity Together (HEATSM) and Keep Your Children/Yourself Safe and Secure (KySSSM), the programs are transitioning into the next generation; however childhood obesity and mental health awareness still continue to be very important initiatives for NAPNAP.
