Our work encompasses most aspects of HIV-related work.
Our comprehensive approach to fight HIV is informed by innovative research in HIV prevention technologies and HIV treatment optimisation. Health Systems Strengthening models are used to improve approaches to care and treatment.
We develop reproductive health care strategies to reach populations in need.
We are committed to providing integrated sexual reproductive health (SRH) care that is informed by scientific research. Our strategy includes providing SRH services and information that encompasses family planning, prevention treatment and care of STIs including HIV.
Vaccines are one of the highest impact health interventions and an increasingly important focus area for Wits RHI.
We are involved in vaccine clinical trials and implementation science. Our goal is to improve vaccines and immunisations so that we will be able to meet the challenges that affect Africa.
We push boundaries with innovation in health services.
We use a multi-pronged approach to improve health outcomes at both national and a global levels through research, technical assistance, advocacy, policy development and health systems strengthening.
