Journal of International AIDS Society Examines Efforts to Integrate HIV Treatment, Primary Care

January 22, 2010

A Journal of the International AIDS Society study examines a case study of efforts to integrate HIV programs into existing public-sector primary health care (PHC) system in Mozambique. Based on their findings, the authors write, "The integration approach enables the public sector PHC system to test more patients for HIV, place more patients on ART more quickly and efficiently, reduce loss-to-follow-up, and achieve greater geographic HIV care coverage compared to the vertical model." They conclude, "The rapid expansion of funding for HIV/AIDS programming provides a unique opportunity to improve all PHC services in African settings. Mozambique experience so far shows that rapid ART scale up and system-wide strengthening must go hand in hand" (Pfeiffer et al., 1/20).
