TUSA13 Making Sense of Complexity: Key Findings from the Integra Initiative on the Integration of SRH and HIV Services
  Non-Commercial Satellite
Venue: Room 203-204
Time: 22.07.2014, 18:30 - 20:30
Chair: Pamela Nash (MP), United Kingdom

Organizer: Integra Initiative (IPPF, LSHTM, Population Council)
Linking sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and HIV makes ‘people sense’ yet all too often SRH and HIV services are provided through vertical, unintegrated programmes.

The Integra Initiative rigorously gathered evidence on the benefits and costs of a range of models for delivering integrated HIV and SRH services in Kenya, Malawi and Swaziland. It was the largest ever evaluation of its kind and used a programme science approach by embedding the research within the day-to-day activities of the 42 health facilities studied.

This satellite will interactively present the results of the Integra Initiative, providing answers to the following questions:
1. Can SRH and HIV integration improve health and service delivery outcomes?
2. Is integration cost effective?
3. Does the integration of services affect quality of care?
4. Does integration reduce stigma and support client choice?
5. How can SRH and HIV services be better integrated and scaled-up?
