HIV

Our work encompasses most aspects of HIV-related work.

Our comprehensive approach to fighting HIV is informed by innovative research ranging from testing multi-purpose prevention technologies, exploring structural drivers, to improving approaches to care and treatment through health systems strengthening, optimising treatment, and developing appropriate models of care for key populations and marginalised groups.

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.

Vaccine preventable diseases

We are involved in vaccine clinical trials and implementation science.

Vaccines are one of the highest impact health interventions and an increasingly important focus area for Wits RHI. Our goal is to improve vaccines and strengthen the rollout of immunisation programmes so that more vaccines are accessible especially to people in hard to reach communities.
