LVCT Health invests in and utilizes data to inform policy and practice
LVCT Health research capacity has grown with multiple multi-year research studies undertaken, partnerships established and peer reviewed paper developed.
We have successfully facilitated research uptake of its findings with many informing policy and practice and will continue in this trajectory and scale this up further.
Our research encompasses a wide range of disciplines and areas of study, with a focus on HIV prevention, Gender Based Violence Prevention and Response, and Community Health Systems Strengthening, Mental Health, Sexual Reproductive Health and Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health
Our Strategic Focus
Guided by our research-policy-practice (Hatua) model, we recognise the importance of evidence-based decision-making and translating research findings into policies and practices that effectively address societal challenges and improve health outcomes.
