In 2014, USAID requested the Health Policy Project (HPP) to undertake an assessment of the status and extent of FP-HIV integration in Malawi. Since integration at the policy level is important and the first step to a well-guided implementation of health service delivery (EngenderHealth, 2014), HPP undertook a policy analysis to determine the level of FP-HIV integration that appears in government policy documents and explored the extent to which the policies outline and address the integration of services. For the purpose of this review, we defined policies to include policies, strategies, guidelines, action plans, implementation plans, clinical and service delivery standards, and other similar documents. Other research components on the status of FP-HIV integration, including stakeholder interviews and a facility-level assessment, are documented in separate reports (forthcoming).
