Effective Integration of Sexual Reproductive Health and HIV Prevention, Treatment and Care Services across sub-Saharan Africa: Where is evidence for program implementation

Cross Journal Supplement

This supplement examines different perspectives of integration between sexual reproductive health and HIV/AIDS treatment and care services; from family planning, to safer conception options for HIV-affected couples, as well as SRH integration in the minimum services package for HIV prevention, care and treatment. The articles also look at innovative approaches for integration within community-based service delivery models. French and Portuguese translations are available, as additional files within each article.  

It was made possible by the generous support of the American People through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in partnership with United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and The Joint United Nations Program on HV/AIDS (UNAIDS). 

The supplement is edited by Sheila Mensah, Abdul Bala, Hugues Guidigbi, Didier Mbayi Kangudie and Richard Delate. The Supplement Editors declare no competing interests.
