Our Purpose:
The Kansas City Infectious Diseases Community Coalition Board is a partnership between academic researchers, patients, parents, health care providers, health service organizations, and community organizations. The goal of the collaborative is to plan, design, and disseminate effective interventions to increase immunization rates among children and adolescents in the Kansas City area.


Our mission is to reduce preventable infectious diseases, increase pediatric immunization rates, and improve health outcomes for all children  and young adults in the Greater Kansas City metropolitan community through education, investigation, and advocacy.

Cervical Cancer is highly preventable in most Western countries because screening tests and a vaccine to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV) infections are available.
