About

We believe every Kentuckian should have the opportunity to live a healthy life and contribute to the health of their communities.

KVH has been a respected voice of consumer advocates and a catalyst in health policy decision-making since 2007. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and nonpartisan coalition, we bring together individuals, advocates, community organizations, state agencies, and policymakers to address the underlying causes of poor health by connecting Kentuckians with opportunities to make change through policy advocacy.

To achieve our vision of a healthier Kentucky, we are leading a coalition of concerned Kentuckians from across the Commonwealth to ensure that every individual and community has a voice in the local, state and national decisions that affect their health.

We do this through:

Leadership

Mobilizing individuals, families and communities to improve the health of all Kentuckians.

Coalition Building

Convening stakeholders and facilitating collaborative partnerships to work together on building a healthier Kentucky.

Advocacy

Raising the voices of Kentuckians to have a say in the decisions that affect their health, their families, and their communities.

Education

Informing and educating coalition members, policymakers, providers, and the general public about local, state, and federal decisions that impact the health of Kentuckians.

Analysis

Making health policy meaningful for Kentuckians through analysis that translates the impact of laws and regulations into plain language.
