At the request of the USAID Mission in Malawi, the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) undertook a comprehensive facility-based assessment to ascertain the extent to which FP services have been integrated into HIV services in Malawi through different integration models and across various types of facilities (public and non-profit private). The study was also designed to examine how the reproductive rights of people living with HIV (PLHIV) are being respected and addressed through approaches such as PIFP and access to method choice. Finally, the study aimed to identify any systems-level barriers to integration and provide practical recommendations for the Ministry of Health (MOH) and other stakeholders to improve FP-HIV integrated services in Malawi.
