Strengthening Services for People Living with HIV: Integrating HIV and Family Planning Services in Angola


The Health For All (HFA) Project worked in partnership with the Government of Angola to integrate provider-initiated HIV testing services into family planning services in health facilities. To support the integration of FP and HIV services, HFA developed standard operating procedures (SOPs) based on each clinical intervention, job aids, and checklists and provided training to health providers and patient assistant facilitators (PAFs) from health units in gender-based violence and integration of both services.

Through this approach, HFA supported health units to provide family planning counseling and service provision for people living with HIV and their spouses, safe conception and pregnancy counseling, and integrated reproductive health communication messages.
