About Us

Our Mission

The Northland Health Alliance (NHA) is dedicated to empowering the Northland public health system to improve the health status and health outcomes of all residents in the Northland.

The Northland Health Alliance (NHA) was created in 2014 by local health organizations interested in working together to improve the health and quality of life of residents in the Northland. The Northland includes the counties of Clay and Platte in the Kansas City, Missouri metropolitan area.

Every three years, the alliance conducts a Community Health Assessment (CHA) that brings together information from resident surveys, public health data, census reports and hospital data to identify the most critical health problems among Northland residents. This information is then used by the task forces within NHA to create initiatives and make evidence-based decisions on how to most effectively invest community resources to address these health problems.

The Northland Health Alliance’s efforts are funded through a combination of contributions from our member organizations plus local, regional, and national grant funding.
