We seek to contribute to national and global goals of reducing new HIV infections, HIV related mortality and morbidity. Our theory of change, provides a succinct overview of what we do and the impact we aim to achieve.
The following are our priority focus areas articulated in greater detail in our strategic plan.
Increasing Access to Comprehensive HIV, SGBV and SRH Services
Undertaking relevant Research, Learning and Knowledge Management
We generate, document and disseminate knowledge and evidence to improve internal and external learning, accountability and decision-making. We undertake operations and implementation science research and utilise evidence to advocate for and provide technical support to governments for development, review and implementation of policies.
LVCT Health undertakes evidence, informed policy advocacy and technical support to governments and non-state actors for development, review and implementation of policies that support improved access to, and quality of HIV and related services for the populations that we serve. We engage in strategic partnerships with other like-minded organisations for greater policy impact.
Strengthening Health Systems
In addition to directly delivering HIV services and programs, one of our biggest roles is as a technical support resource for strengthening health systems in Kenya. We do this through building technical and organisational capacities Timisha model of local organisations, supporting counties and the national government to strengthen HIV service delivery and reporting systems as well as training and on job mentorship of health care workers and other service providers.
We support counties in implementation of national policies that are relevant to increasing quality and address bottlenecks that affect access to health services. We disseminate policies developed at national level and support counties to develop and operationalize implementation plans. A continuous process of learning counties’ dynamics and utilizing available county data, we advocate for implementation of need responsive interventions by counties.
LVCT Health has played a critical role in development of National policies, standards and guidelines frameworks in HIV, GBV and SRH fronts with most recent being HIV self-testing Manual and National guidelines on use of Antiretroviral drugs for treatment and prevention of HIV in Kenya.
