Medical-Legal Partnership for Children

The Medical-Legal Partnership for Children - Hawai‘i (MLPC) is an innovative collaboration between KKV and the University of Hawaii William S. Richardson School of Law that aims to address the systemic social and economic determinants of health and streamline patients’ access to legal and social services. Based at KKV’s main clinic during twice weekly Pediatric Clinics, MLPC lawyers work with pediatricians to practice “preventive law.” The goal is to prevent the continuation or escalation of social and legal problems that affect the health and well-being of families and to improve the living conditions of Kalihi Valley’s children and families.
