Module about contraception for women with HIV.

Contraception for Women and Couples with HIV, a training module from FHI and EngenderHealth, is designed to inform providers of family planning or of HIV treatment and care services about the reproductive choices and contraceptive options available to their HIV-positive clients. It summarizes the scientific evidence on contraception for clients with HIV, provides an overview of antiretroviral therapy, and discusses counseling approaches to help HIV-positive clients make informed, voluntary decisions about childbearing and contraception. The module includes PowerPoint slides, a narrative, audience handouts, and reprints of key scientific studies and other sources. Developed for use in southern and eastern Africa with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development's USAID's) Regional Economic Development Services Office for East and Southern Africa, the module is available at: http://www.fhi.org/en/RH/Training/trainmat/ARVmodule.htm.
