Access to Health Services – Our VISION
Every person in Wyandotte County has access to health services (physical, mental) that are needed, quality, timely, and available at an affordable cost.
Why does health access matter?
Health—and access to quality health services—is a human right. Justice requires that we work together to assure that quality physical/mental health services are available to meet the needs of everyone.
Our Projects – What have we been doing about it?
LHFA’s Health Access Projects reflect key strategies to improve access to health care including expanding the availability of quality and culturally-competent services, removing barriers to access, and assuring universal coverage through insurance programs and government policies.
Three illustrative Health Access Projects of the LHFA Coalition and its partners:
- Working with partners, we designed and implemented an organizational development approach to promoting cultural competence and humility. For MORE.
- Working with JUNTOS and other partners, we supported diabetes prevention classes for Spanish-speaking participants. For MORE.
- Working with Enroll Wyandotte and its partners, we designed and implemented a playbook for supporting enrollment in health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. For MORE.
What can you do?
Working together, we can assure access to quality health services for all.
