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

Maternal, Neonatal & Child Health (MNCH), Tuberculosis (TB),
Adolescent Health (AH), and Comprehensive Primary Health Care
