LVCT Health

Our Identity

LVCT Health is a Kenyan non-governmental and not-for-profit organization registered in 2002 after a research project that pioneered the first three HIV voluntary counselling and testing centres in Kenya.

We are driven by our vision, the belief and goal of ending new HIV infections in Kenya, the achievement of the best quality of life for those living with HIV and equitable access to universal health for everyone. We are a leader in HIV prevention, treatment, gender-based violence (GBV) and community health programmes.

Over the years, we have continued to offer comprehensive HIV, Sexual and Reproductive Health & Gender Based Violence (SGBV) programming at facility and community level, supported by research, health systems strengthening and policy influencing through innovative, integrated, comprehensive and high impact services and programmes. We target the vulnerable and most marginalized members of the society.

Our work is anchored in a Research-Policy-Practice -RPP framework (Hatua model) through which we implement evidence-informed programs. We pilot innovative solutions to the HIV challenges identified in the national and community priorities and support scale-up for population-level impact.

In addition, we use research and implementation evidence to strengthen health systems and support policy development.

We are currently working in 34 of the 47 counties in Kenya. We also provide technical support, coordination and re-granting resource for countries in Eastern and Southern Africa. 

Our core values are fundamental to our identity and drive our organisational culture. They are:

  1. Commitment to Service: We are passionate about our mission; we go beyond the call of duty and seek to deliver value that supersedes our clients’ and partners’ expectations.
  2. Accountability:We are efficient, transparent and responsibly apply resources entrusted to us for optimal benefit to our beneficiaries.
  3. Quality: We put on our personal and professional best to deliver to the satisfaction of all. We set and maintain the Gold Standard.
  4. Integrity: We consistently live our commitments and hold ourselves to the highest level of moral and ethical uprightness and honesty.
  5. Courage:We are trailblazers. We boldly take leadership on new frontiers, question status quo and undertake change where need be.
