about our work

KHF is committed to our mission of improving the health of all Kansans. Every day we seek to make progress in five key impact areas (access to care, physical activity, healthy food access, civic engagement and tobacco use). Throughout this section, we provide details of how we’re trying to make these impacts, including through two primary program areas: Health Equity and Civic Health.

Health Equity

Tremendous differences in health outcomes still exist for many groups and communities. KHF is working to reduce health disparities related to social and economic factors.
