    The Kansas City Physical Activity Plan (KCPA Plan) draws from local research studies, community recommendations on physical activity, and national physical activity reports, including the National Physical Activity Plan and the United States Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth.

    The KCPA Plan focuses on the six counties that make up the majority of the Kansas City metropolitan area: Jackson, Clay, Cass and Platte Counties in Missouri, and Wyandotte and Johnson Counties in Kansas.

    The goal of the KCPA Plan is to identify and align with community-specific, evidence-based strategies for improving physical activity across the Kansas City region.

    A 17 year difference in life expectancy exists in Kansas City communities located less than 3 miles apart. What's the difference between these neighborhoods? In a word: racism.

    Kansas City has a long history of racism and segregation, largely driven by redlining, blockbusting, and disinvestment of Black and other neighborhoods of color that has left a devastating & lasting impact on our populations of color. Those that experience the greatest disparities in health outcomes are also those who experience greater social and economic inequities. These kind of inequities persist because of institutionalized practices that continue to advantage those in power and disadvantage those without power.

    The Health Commission is updating the current Community Health Improvement Plan (KC-CHIP) to close the gap on these health inequities by addressing the policies and practices that perpetuate racism.
