Not enough $ Funded Innovation Network to do baseline advocacy evaluation What is the state of advocacy in KS currently? Innovation Network Advocacy Evaluation Helped us understand the field better Data validated assumptions and theories e.g. 73% of organizations dont have adequate funding to advocate successfully Provided justification for our efforts e.g. Organizations are comfortable with and heavily relying on public education campaigns, yet grassroots organizing and
advocacy capacity building are areas that need to be strengthened Impact on KHFs Work Great insight into KHFs connectivity w/ orgs e.g. 46% of orgs who focus on health have received funding from KHF. However, most orgs focused on social determinants of health such as education, labor and employment, race and ethnicity, LGBTQI, environment, immigration, and criminal justice have never engaged with KHF. Huge insight into connectivity among orgs Well connected vs. insular In-degree vs. out-degree Connectivity by issue areas
Health Equity Partnership Initiative Purpose To address health disparities as defined by KHFs Strategic Framework.

Mental health Cognitive, sensory, or physical disability Sexual orientation or gender identity Other influences on health include the availability of and access to: High-quality education Nutritious food Decent and safe housing Affordable and reliable public transportation Culturally sensitive health care providers Violence-free environment Health insurance
Clean water Health Equity Partnership Initiative 3 year initiative, funding 10 orgs at $100,000 a year each - $300,000 total/org KHFs vision for HEPI: The stronger the internal capacities of organizations focused on health disparities and the better connected they are to one another, the more robust the health equity movement in Kansas will be. KHF envisions an environment in which organizations working on different issues related to health disparities: Regularly connect; Are aware of and support one anothers efforts; and Build power together.
