Integrating Family Planning into HIV Prevention, Care, and Treatment Services
The ACQUIRE Project, with funding from USAID, worked in Uganda and Ghana on a pilot basis to integrate family planning (FP) into antiretroviral therapy (ART) services. Lessons learned from the pilot will be replicated more widely. In Uganda, ACQUIRE is collaborated with The AIDS Support Organization (TASO), a local non-governmental organization providing HIV/AIDS care and treatment including ART. The goal of the pilot was to offer FP services as an integral component of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services for HIV positive women and their partners particularly to those receiving ART services. This poster was presented at the American Public Health Association's annual conference in 2007.

Addressing the Reproductive Health Needs of PLHIV: What Do Systems Have to Do with It?
This presentation discusses the definition, rationale and goals for integrating family planning with ART services. It is followed by an overview of ACQUIRE’s approach to integration (including suggested levels of integration and relevant service delivery systems). In addition, it uses the illustrative example of ACQUIRE’s work in Uganda for an interactive session on systems considerations for integration and offers conclusions for supporting FP-integrated ART services to address the needs of people living with HIV. This presentation was given at the MAQ Mini-University in October 2007.
