Integration of HIV Care with Primary Care Services: Impact on Patient Knowledge, Satisfaction, and Stigma in Rural Kenya

Presented in 2010 at the 4th International Workshop on HIV Treatment, Pathogenesis and Prevention Research in Resource-poor Settings (INTEREST), in Maputo, Mozambique.

Introduction:  Funding for vertical HIV programs has allowed for specialized staff training, better-equipped facilities, and rapid program implementation and scale-up of HIV services. Suba District, a high-HIV prevalence region in rural Kenya with a shortage of health care workers, has benefited from rapid HIV scale-up. An integrated approach for HIV and non-HIV services may improve clinic efficiency and infrastructure. Integration of HIV services into the outpatient department (OPD) was piloted in Suba District and evaluated between December 2008 and March 2009.
