Our Vision

We envision a Missouri in which systems and structures promote health and well-being for all, where all people have affordable and high-quality insurance coverage, every Missourian has access to quality care, and inequities in health and well-being disappear.

Our Vision

Our Mission: To eliminate underlying causes of health inequities, transform systems, and enable individuals and communities to thrive.

We are building a more equitable future through collaboration, convening, knowledge sharing, and strategic investment. Working in partnership with communities and nonprofits, we are transforming systems to eliminate inequities within all aspects of health and addressing the social and economic factors that shape health outcomes.

We are committed to a discreet collection of issues, in which we’ve identified ways that we can have long-term impact and catalyze change toward a healthier Missouri in which:

  • All people have affordable health insurance coverage
  • Every Missourian has access to high-quality care
  • Inequities in health and well-being disappear, and
  • Every community provides a social, economic, and physical environment that offers opportunities to thrive and promotes health and well-being for all.

While our environment presents an abundance of opportunities that we could pursue consistent with the breadth of our mission, our existing scale of resources means that we make thoughtful, responsible choices in order to have impact.
