Health Equity Network

The Johnson County Health Equity Network is a multisector collaborative of community partners dedicated to ensuring that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible regardless of who you are, where you live, or what your circumstances may be. The Health Equity Network exists to align, support, and reinforce the Johnson County community’s health equity activities and to promote a culture in which those who experience health inequities (“the priority population”) can take the lead in addressing the root causes. Creating a strong and vibrant Health Equity Network in Johnson County will ensure equitable health outcomes for current and future residents, which will help our entire community reach its full potential.

The Health Equity Network is facilitated by United Community Services of Johnson County and the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment with funding support from the Kansas Health Foundation and the REACH Healthcare Foundation. A multisector Leadership Team enhances the work of the Health Equity Network by conducting research and collaborative planning, engaging new partners, and implementing strategic shared goals.
