Addressing Unmet Need for Contraception among HIV-Positive Women in Northern and North Eastern Uganda
Pathfinder, in partnership with PATH-CIDA, received a two and a half year grant to integrate family planning into HIV/AIDS services in 11 post-conflict districts in northern and northeastern Uganda. The project integrates family planning services into existing prevention of mother to child transmission and antiretroviral therapy services by working with community groups to build demand for services, and collaborating with facilities to ensure quality counseling, contraceptive services, and referrals. Pathfinder received a six month no-cost extension to continue project activities through June 2013.
In year three of the grant, the project has continued to surpass its quarterly targets to reach HIV-positive women with family planning/HIV integrated services. This has been achieved through accessing family planning/HIV integrated services at the health facility, through community counseling and referrals, and through provision during community dialogues where family planning/HIV integration is discussed. An endline assessment is underway to analyze project results and achievements.
