$2M committed

to study gun-injury prevention

Kaiser Permanente has a long history of investigating issues important to the nation’s health — now, we’re bringing that same expertise to researching the prevention of gun injuries.

We will research gun-injury prevention the same way we study the prevention of cancer and heart disease, and collaborate with partners to share and spread best practices throughout our communities and nation.

In 2016, firearm-related injuries claimed over 30,000 lives in America. Kaiser Permanente delivered or paid for firearm-related care for 4,221 people in 2017 and 2018.

That's why we are acting now to create a future with less gun-related violence
