Center for Public Health Initiatives

The Center for Public Health Initiatives believes that strategic partnerships that build capacity are needed for Kansas to maintain a high performing public health system. The center provides technical assistance, training and evaluation support for local health departments and other organizations that provide public health services.

Public health promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, learn, work and play. The Center for Public Health Initiatives works to improve the public health system in Kansas by empowering people, developing organizations and strengthening systems. Center staff empower people through training, support and coaching; develop organizations through strategic planning, agency performance improvement and capacity building; and strengthen systems by facilitating statewide collaborative initiatives, providing peer learning opportunities and creating opportunities for change.
