 KIT Health

Our Knowledge Unit Health has about 50 health advisors from various backgrounds working across 4 teams: 1) health systems strengthening, 2) sexual reproductive health and rights, 3) disease control and 4) education.

KIT Health aims to improve access to quality health services by partnering with local and national governments and international organisations. We offer technical advice, research, impact evaluation, policy development assistance and capacity building in low and middle income countries. Through our master programmes, short courses and institutional capacity building, KIT equips health professionals to be leaders in addressing public health challenges around the world.

KIT’s unique premises

KIT is the owner of the historical building on the Mauritskade/Linnaeusstraat where a number of the KIT departments and Tropenmuseum are housed. As a result of recent reorganisation at KIT, 6000m2 office space and congress and hotel facilities have become available for use by third parties. This created a hub for international sustainable cooperation, hosted by KIT; a place where companies and organisations, including the research and consultancy departments at KIT, are able to pool their resources in the areas of sustainable international and intercultural development.
