Integrating Family Planning and Antiretroviral Therapy: A Client-Oriented Service Model
Service integration is an approach in which health care providers use opportunities to engage a client in addressing broader health and social needs beyond those prompting the initial health care encounter. Integrated programming can take many forms, both within the health sector and between sectors (such as integration between health and environment programs). Integration of family planning services with antiretroviral therapy (ART) services offers an opportunity to support the basic human right of people living with HIV to achieve their reproductive intentions. The integration approach presented in this guide encourages supervisors, planners, service providers, and community-based personnel to consider opportunities for operationalizing the integration of family planning into the provision of ART in a way that responds to and respects clients’ needs and desires. While this guide focuses on the integration of family planning with ART, the approach and principles are applicable for integrating core and additional services, whatever they may be. This program guide has a potentially wide range of audiences and applications. Donors, implementing organizations, technical advisors and supervisors, trainers, counselors, and community health personnel may all find this guide helpful in thinking through the steps needed to make service integration a programming reality.
