The Swaziland Linking HIV and SRH Programme Best Practice Series

This booklet is a compilation of a Swaziland Best Practice in integrated SRH and HIV services, using the integration of family planning (FP) into antiretroviral therapy (ART) services as an entry point. Siphofaneni Clinic is one of five SRH and HIV facilities in Swaziland selected as Centres of Excellence, which are being strengthened to serve as models for integrated, interlinked SRH and HIV services. These facilities are of different levels in the country and include:

  • Family Life Association Swaziland Manzini Clinic.
  • Mankayane Government Hospital
  • Matsanjeni Health Centre
  • Mbabane Public Health Unit
  • Siphofaneni Clinic.

Of these five, Siphofaneni Clinic has made significant progress towards integration of FP into ART services, the subject of this documentation. This presents an opportunity for other service providers to learn from this particular aspect of the facility’s service intervention. This booklet outlines:

  • The background to the project.
  • Methodology of the documentation.
  • Details of the integration of family planning into ART services best practices and key success factors.
  • Lessons learnt challenges and recommendations.
