Integration of HIV and Family Planning Health Services in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Review of the Literature, Current Recommendations, and Evidence from the Service Provision Assessment Health Facility Surveys

 

This report provides a review of the current literature on integration of HIV-related services with other areas of service delivery that have important synergies with HIV services. The review indicates that while there remain concerns about integration, such as degradation of the quality of services, insufficient health system capacity, and financial implications, the balance of the literature finds that clinical, service delivery, cost-effectiveness, and rights-based benefits accrue from integration.
