Though substantial progress has been made to curb the HIV epidemic over the past decade, high rates of new HIV infections persist among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) in sub-Saharan Africa, reflecting critical gaps in reaching them with integrated HIV prevention and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services. With the scale-up of oral pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and introduction of multiple novel HIV prevention products on the horizon, countries have a unique opportunity to expand innovative approaches to deliver comprehensive, integrated HIV/SRH services.
This webinar will highlight the findings of assessments on HIV/SRH integration in Kenya, Malawi and Zimbabwe, featuring promising approaches to HIV/SRH integration and persistent challenges that merit urgent attention. Presenters from HIV and SRH departments at the Ministry of Health in each country will amplify progress to date and share context-specific realities. Lessons learned can inform the investment in and scale-up of HIV/SRH integration in other high HIV-burden countries and settings.
