This document is based on a combination of expert opinions, recommendations in the published literature, and lessons learned from field experience with integrating services to date.

It offers a range of activities for program planners to consider implementing in order to enhance new or existing linkages. It also acknowledges, however, that integrating FP and HIV services might not be appropriate in every circumstance or country. Where integration is appropriate, this document is intended to help program planners identify action steps. It also provides links to existing resources, such as facility-assessment tools, training curricula, and job aids, that will support the implementation of action steps.
