KIT Royal Tropical Institute envisions a world where everyone can realise their full health potential. Health around the world is improving, but large groups of people are being left behind. Political instability, natural disasters and climate change also leave many more vulnerable to exclusion. Guided by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, our health unit works towards improving equity in health in the developing world by empowering people and strengthening countries’ health systems.
To improve access to quality health services KIT partners with local and national governments and international organisations, offering targeted advice, research and fresh insights based on a thorough understanding of each specific context. KIT’s multicultural health unit consists of a team of 40 health care professionals with knowledge and experience of working in the poorest countries.
