We believe that a broad approach is needed to improve the health of Kansans. To make sound decisions that optimize health, policymakers must understand how our health is influenced by a wide range of factors. Among these are the lifestyle choices we make, our socioeconomic status, our cultural diversity, the quality of our communities and schools and the financing, organization and effectiveness of our public health and health care systems.
KHI helps policymakers understand the linkages between these factors and the health of Kansans in several ways. We conduct research, provide policy analysis, convene conversations and sponsor educational forums. This section highlights our recent work and our commitment to encouraging a comprehensive approach to health policy.
