Communication & Advocacy

© 2009 Keri Ladd, Courtesy of PhotoshareMany countries are experiencing a growing demand for the integration of family planning and HIV (FP/HIV) services. Advocacy and communication activities are essential to ensuring that community leaders, policy makers, program managers, clients and others understand the issues and opportunities related to improving access to quality services through FP/HIV integration. Also, clients need to understand what services are available to them, the health benefits of receiving HIV and family planning services, and what health behaviors they must adopt to prevent HIV infection and/or unintended pregnancy.

This section of the Family Planning and HIV Services Integration Toolkit contains materials for advocacy and for health communications.
