Acquiring Knowledge: Integrating Family Planning with Antiretroviral Therapy PDF Print E-mail

DATE: 2007

This project brief looks at a pilot project conducted by the ACQUIRE Project to integrate family planning within HIV care and treatment services. ACQUIRE worked with The AIDS Support Organization (TASO) in Uganda to implement a number of strategies, such as:

* Determining the fertility desires and reproductive health issues of HIV-positive women and couples, including how women accessing HIV care and treatment service met their family planning needs
* Assessing the service-delivery system's capacity to provide family planning within HIV care and treatment services, looking at factors such as service providers' capability, supervisory support, and medical policies
* Assisting service providers, supervisors, and service-delivery systems in using a model to provide family planning within HIV care and treatment sites
* Monitoring and evaluating family planning-integrated HIV care and treatment services
* Sharing project experiences to guide expansion of family planning-integrated services
