Issues related to COVID-19 have drastically altered everyday life across our nation and state. Now, the first vaccines have been approved, and there may be light at the end of the tunnel. But, for now, Kansans must remain vigilant, practice social distancing and learn more about vaccine availability. The Kansas Health Foundation has gathered numerous resources related to the vaccines, all of which is available in the links below. In the meantime, KHF continues to work across to assist with COVID-19 response and recovery. For a full overview of all KHF is doing during the pandemic, please view our 2020 COVID-19 Response Summary. You can also view printable PDFs about the COVID-19 vaccine in English, Spanish and both languages.

We envision a culture in which every Kansan can make healthy choices where they live, work and play. We invest in ideas for healthier people and stronger communities. With Kansas data, we know that health outcomes are greatly affected by race, income, education level and geographic areas. This affects both individuals and families – as children from lower-income, racial/ethnic minority groups and certain zip codes experience lower health outcomes and educational challenges.
To realize its vision and mission, KHF invests in the following key program areas:
It is important for all Kansans to have access to health care, for help when they are sick, and to prevent or reduce the severity of disease and illness.Read More
