The Safe Injection Practices Coalition (SIPC) is a partnership of healthcare-related organizations, patient advocacy organizations, industry partners, and other public health partners, led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC Foundation is the convening partner of the coalition, formed to promote safe injection practices in all U.S. healthcare settings. In 2009, SIPC Founding Partners developed the One & Only Campaign — a public health effort to eliminate unsafe medical injections.
In 2014, Eli Lilly and Company began a partnership with the CDC Foundation to support and expand CDC’s Safe Injection Practices Coalition. The partnership extends the reach of Safe Injection Practices Coalition’s One & Only Campaign. Lilly’s partnership supports the Coalition’s development of new resources and tools that will be used for provider training, general awareness and patient empowerment. Funding also supports dissemination of safe injection messages using social media (follow us @InjectionSafety), YouTube, electronic continuing medical education, advertising and print materials for providers and patients.
SIPC Partners are committed to bringing safer healthcare to everyone through the development and distribution of educational and multimedia tools for healthcare providers and patients on the issue of injection-safety. The current work of the One & Only Campaign is driven by SIPC Partners.
