In light of recent progress towards elimination of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, the strong momentum for integrating programmes on HIV, sexual and reproductive health (SRH), maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH), family planning, and sexually transmitted infections, and country-level adoption of the 2013 Consolidated World Health Organization Guidelines, there has been growing demand for practical guidance to optimize integrated service delivery models.

This compendium of case studies showcases innovative approaches to integrated HIV-SRH service delivery for improving MNCH outcomes, and strengthening health and community systems. It is hoped that the 11 case studies included in this publication will help to inform future programming by providing examples of promising practices related to integration in sub-Saharan Africa in order to extrapolate the common elements of, and barriers to, effective integrated service delivery.
