Who We Are:
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. What We Do:
At Kentucky Voices for Health, we believe that every Kentuckian should have the opportunity to live a healthy life and contribute to the health of their communities.

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.
