KIT Institute is an active player in the promotion of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and the global response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Our Masters in Public Health includes a specialised track in HIV and SRHR and we also offer research and advisory services to assist other parties with policy development and strengthening their programmes.


Great advances have been made in HIV prevention, treatment and care. However, 1.7 million people become newly infected every year, every week 6,000 women (aged 15-24) are newly infected with HIV, and AIDS-related illnesses are the leading cause of death among 15-49-year-old females globally —according to the UNAIDS – AIDS by the Numbers, November 2019.

Understanding the contexts of these new infections—as well as the implications of treatment and prevention strategies—are crucial to effectively addressing HIV prevention. KIT aims to undertake such research and translate research findings into evidence. The goal of this work is to successfully contribute to HIV reduction and the promotion of SRHR.

Men, unmarried youth, and marginalised groups, such as gay men and women, sex workers, intravenous drug-users, and people living with HIV, are often ignored by such programmes. KIT is dedicated to breaking down the barriers to services and education that can help create satisfying and healthy sex lives and effective birth control for those most in need.
