Addressing Unmet Need for Contraception among HIV-Positive Women: Endline Survey Results and Comparison with the Baseline

This is a report of a facility-based endline survey that was conducted as part of a program evaluation to assess the Arise—Enhancing HIV Prevention for At-Risk-Populations project in Uganda. Arise is integrating family planning services into HIV services in 11 districts in Northern and Eastern Uganda. The project, funded by the Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD) through the Arise project, was designed to address the high unmet need for family planning that had been reported in past studies in Uganda, in order to prevent HIV infections by ensuring that HIV-positive women do not have unintended pregnancies, providing counseling to women who do become pregnant about how to limit transmission to their babies, and by encouraging partner counseling and testing and dual method use to prevent infections in uninfected partners of women infected with HIV. The report compares the findings from the baseline with the endline survey and they suggest that the Arise project successfully contributed to increasing demand for and use of family planning by women living with HIV in northern Uganda.
