This fact sheet "Issues in Brief : The Role of Reproductive Health Providers in Preventing HIV" has been produced in collaboration with the Alan Guttmacher Institute, UNAIDS, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and UNFPA. AIDS experts warn that the long-term success of global efforts to fight the pandemic will require the simultaneous expansion of prevention efforts alongside care and treatment. Reproductive health providers are poised to play an important role in reducing the incidence of new HIV infections. This analysis discusses the capacity of these providers to more fully integrate HIV-related activities into their service set and the benefits that would accrue, as well as the benefits of integrating reproductive health services into HIV programs.
