Topic » Integration: HIV/AIDS

Integrating sexual and reproductive health care with HIV programs increases people’s access to information and services that reduce sexually-transmitted infections (including HIV), unintended pregnancies, maternal and newborn deaths, and mother-to-child transmission of HIV. Because clients seeking HIV services and those seeking family planning services share many needs and concerns, integrating services enables providers to address them efficiently and comprehensively. Integration also assures that the reproductive health and rights of people living with HIV/AIDS are addressed and respected. Improving access to reproductive health services, including contraception, is one of the most important interventions for effective HIV prevention, treatment and care. PAI is working to accelerate country demand for integrated health programs, providing support to in-country civil society organizations to start integration programs, and advocating to the Global Fund and other institutions, including the U.S. government, to prioritize integration in combating the spread of HIV.
