A Handbook for Integrating Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights into HIV Programmes

This handbook presents key information to support training that will heighten understanding of how SRHR and MNCH are relevant to those of us working in the HIV field, and how these aspects can be integrated into our programmes. There are always concerns when it comes to ‘integrating’ something, with questions such as “does this not just mean more work?”. This handbook is designed to highlight feasible ways of integrating SRHR and MNCH into HIV programmes. This is not a small task, but we should bear in mind that the HIV epidemic calls for strong and innovative action, and that by integrating SRHR and MNCH we have the potential to reduce the impact this disease is having on communities in Zambia.
