New Toolkit on Family Planning and HIV Services Integration
K4Health recently published a new toolkit developed by Family Health International (FHI), titled “Family Planning and HIV Services Integration.”
The toolkit provides evidence-based knowledge and practices to support the successful integration of family planning (FP) and HIV services. It contains resources selected by FHI staff to help policy makers, program managers, service providers, and other audiences improve FP and HIV services by integrating them.
Integration of FP and HIV services offers opportunities to reach more women with life-saving services such as contraception, HIV prevention counseling, and antiretroviral therapy. Addressing women’s reproductive health needs in a holistic manner strengthens the impact of both FP and HIV services. Guided by this principle, FHI summarized the latest evidence into the toolkit providing links to guidelines and tools that will help users plan, manage, deliver, evaluate, and support integrated services.
As with all the toolkits published on K4Health, we hope that with your help they will evolve over time – capturing new evidence-based information and filling knowledge gaps – to meet the needs of health policy makers, program managers, and service providers.
We invite you to contribute by suggesting resources to include in the toolkit and by posting your comments and feedback on the discussion board.
We also recently published a new eLearning course on FP and reproductive health for people living with HIV. K4Health’s eLearning team is also eager to help organizations create courses that combine technical content with program principles, best practices, and case studies. Organizations can also suggest a course topic for consideration by contacting the team at email@example.com.
