K-CHIP is now WA-CHIP! The Washington Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Seattle Children’s, and Public Health – Seattle & King County formed the King County Child Health Improvement Partnership (K-CHIP), funded by the Best Starts for Kids (BSK) initiative in 2019. The partnership has now expanded to encompass all of Washington State as the Washington Child Health Improvement Partnership (WA-CHIP), with the addition of the Washington State Department of Health.

About the Project


WA-CHIP supports cohorts of clinics to increase adolescent vaccination coverage. Over a 9-month period, clinics identify opportunities to increase adolescent vaccinations, implement improvements, receive regular data and coaching, and benefit from participating in a community of clinics working toward the same goals.
