Medical-Legal Partnership for Children In Hawaii
Working Alongside Communities
The Medical-Legal Partnership for Children in Hawai'i (MLPC) is a unique collaboration between the William S. Richardson School of Law (University of Hawai'i at Mānoa) and Kōkua Kalihi Valley Comprehensive Family Services (KKV), a community health center. We seek to address and improve the social determinants of health that impact child and family well-being. MLPC follows the national medical-legal partnership model of engaging in the following three core activities:
Providing direct legal services to low-income clients through Legal Advocacy Clinics on-site at a community health clinic setting;
Transforming legal and health practice through professional education and training; and
Working together as doctors and lawyers to address systemic advocacy issues, including policy change, community empowerment, and professional training.
