Frequently Asked Questions

Commit to C.A.R.E. is a public awareness campaign with a mission to: 

  • Debunk myths about the spread of the COVID-19 virus
  • Make the complexities of the science easier to understand through various engaging multi-media tools
  • Encourage businesses to pledge their commitment to C.A.R.E. for the health and well-being of their employees, clients, and customers. 

C.A.R.E. is an acronym that reflects the principles of Community, Awareness, Responsibility, and Equity.  As such, we strive to deliver clear science-based messaging that reflects our commitment to public health across the communities where we work and live. 

We know that vaccination is one key way to reduce the transmission and severity of COVID-19. However, there are other steps organizations should take to mitigate its spread and protect what matters most — people.  

This campaign will promote and disseminate a variety of free resources (such as micro-training videos, checklists, web tools) for businesses to safeguard their employees as well as demonstrate their commitment to the communities in which they reside. All tools developed under this project have been created with the needs of a nonscientific / non-medical audience in mind - people running businesses. They are designed to empower accountability and responsibility and intended to facilitate fair and equitable access to information by everyone. 

Commit to C.A.R.E. was developed in 2021 by the AIHA and IBEC, under a cooperative grant agreement funded in part by a CDC/NIOSH grant.
