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).

KHPT received funding support to focus on Improving Early Childhood Care and development (ECCD) through a life cycle approach – a pilot intervention in Tumakuru and Kunigal taluks of Tumakuru districts. An evaluation study has been designed to evaluate the influence of the intervention of pre-conception care for aspiring mothers through focussed training of Frontline workers (FLWs) on ECCD components for better pregnancy outcomes and improved childhood nutritional and cognitive parameters.
