Karnataka Health Promotion Trust (KHPT)
How it All Began
They began their journey in 2003 as a Lead Partner for Programme Implementation with the Government of Karnataka to scale up targeted HIV prevention, care and support programmes across the state. Their interventions were evidence driven, systematically planned and rigorously implemented and monitored. These later became scalable models for national programmes and emerged as learning sites for innovative approaches.
Growth and Learning along the Way
They learned and reflected on our decade long experience. It inspired us to look beyond HIV focused programmes to understand and address the underlying determinants, health and wellbeing of other marginalised communities. Today, their work involves
enhancing maternal, neonatal and child health
controlling urban Tuberculosis
empowering adolescent girls
addressing violence against women
improving the quality of Life of orphan and vulnerable children
strengthening community institutions
We reached thousands of Lives and created a legacy of robust community-owned institutions and a network of strong implementing partners.
They design, implement and evaluate evidence-based programmes. Their expertise includes strategic planning, large-scale programme implementation and management, epidemic appraisals, policy anaLysis, monitoring and evaluation and operations research. Learnings from our work have informed and continue to feed into state and national policies. They partner effectively with community institutions, government and the private sector to achieve specific, measurable outcomes in all our work.
They have been part of several global and nationaL consortia and continue to collaborate with new ones.
