The Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City supports many organizations with disease-specific missions. These organizations may target related diseases or conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, or they might focus on one disease such as cancer or HIV/AIDS. Their work may consist of research, education and advocacy, patient services and support, or a combination of services. Like much of the United States, our service area has high incidents of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, chronic lower respiratory diseases, and stroke. Many of the resources found below focus on these areas. For information on HPV, please see the Immunizations and Vaccines resources section.
