 Arizona Partners Against Pertussis Campaign (APAP) –  In 2012 we had one infant death in Arizona. Arizona Partners Against Pertussis (APAP) was a statewide campaign created to work together to reduce pertussis exposure to patients. Our first big campaign in 2012-2013 resulted in over 2,000 healthcare workers pledging to keep their patients safe by immunizing themselves against pertussis. Our education grand rounds reached over 2,255 health care workers. If you are interested in more information regarding grand rounds please contact us. Your support of this initiative is crucial. All healthcare personnel and staff are asked to get immunized against pertussis to decrease the spread of this contagious, yet preventable disease. If you are interested in APAP education materials please contact TapiAdmin@tapi.org.
