Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit (MITU)

The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) founded the Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit (MITU, or the Unit) in 2006, initially receiving funding from the UK Medical Research Council (MRC). The long-standing and extremely fruitful scientific partnership between the two institutions in Mwanza served as the foundation for the establishment of the Unit. This MITU partnership began in the late 1980s, while HIV/AIDS was spreading quickly throughout East Africa.

Since HIV prevalence had not yet reached high levels and there was a chance that the research could have a significant influence on the spread of the virus, Mwanza was selected as the location for HIV prevention studies. The presence of a significant NIMR research center in the city, which could offer a solid and established foundation for the partnership, was the guiding principle behind the decision to locate research in Mwanza.
