KHPT is a not-for-profit charitable entity that spearheads focused initiatives to
improve the health and wellbeing of communities in India. In 2003, KHPT was
founded with a mission to enhance the health and wellbeing of vulnerable
communities and our journey started with the focus on reducing the prevalence
of HIV in Karnataka, specifically among most at-risk populations. These
interventions were evidence-driven, systematically planned, rigorously
implemented, and monitored. We succeeded in scaling impact well beyond
Karnataka and KHPT became a learning site for innovative approaches. We work
primarily in the fields of Maternal, Neonatal & Child health (MNCH), Tuberculosis
(TB), Adolescent Health (AH), and Comprehensive Primary Health Care (CPHC)
