LVCT Health

Partner with Us

We value partnerships and we believe that through working with like-minded and strategic partners, we can achieve joint learning, programme synergies and greater impact. LVCT Health endeavours to identify and partner with community members, community organisations, counties, research and implementing partners and donors.

We have continued to ensure that there is meaningful involvement of our stakeholders throughout each project life-cycle. We have involved our beneficiaries in research, design, implementation and evaluation of programmes – because their feedback is invaluable to us.

We endeavour to share our lessons learnt and best practices while benefiting from other reputable institutions in the field of HIV and SGBV.


LVCT Health has a vibrant research team and diverse research opportunities where students and local and international organizations have an opportunity to contribute towards. We are open to partnering with local and international institutions in:

  • Designing and implementing collaborative research projects
  • Hosting research fellows

We have undertaken various research projects we have undertaken as enumerated on the Research page.

Capacity Building at LVCT Health

LVCT Health’s exciting Capacity Building Program offers exciting opportunities to graduate candidates (Master and PhD) to gain hands-on research experience and advance their research careers in any of our three thematic research areas, namely HIV Research, Violence and Community Health Systems Strengthening.

Our approach

While candidates tailor their engagement with LVCT Health to meet their specific academic objectives, we have two main approaches for capacity building:

a) Graduate internships

Masters students are welcome to utilize the LVCT Health platform to either gain pre-determined competencies or conduct research towards their theses. They may collect primary data as part of ongoing research projects of analyze existing data. Students taking up graduate internships are supervised by their academic supervisor and an onsite supervisor at LVCT Health.

b) PhD Fellowships

PhD fellowships at LVCT Health allow doctoral candidates to advance their academic careers as they provide technical support to ongoing research projects within the organization. PhD Fellows usually seek external support to their coursework and utilize LVCT Health’s service delivery platform, research infrastructure or networks to conduct their doctoral research.
