Transitioning women of child bearing age to Dolutegravir-based regimen coupled with integration of family planning (FP) and HIV services: Lessons learnt from Zambia-Copperbelt, Central, and Northwestern provinces.


The transitioning of women on ART to TLD in the three SAFE-supported regions was greatly affected by the Tsepamostudy findings, which led to clinicians initially not enrolling women of childbearing age on TLD.

USAID SAFE intensified the integration of FP services into the HIV program at all supported facilities to increase the confidence of clinicians to enroll more women on TLD. Retrospective program-level data were reviewed and analyzed to evaluate the trend of transitioning women of childbearing age to TLD, coupled with the integration of FP services in the ART clinics. This poster was presented at the AIDS 2020 Virtual Conference.
