Healthy families Program
The primary objective is to support HIV affected men and women who desire to have children. The program assists these couples in meeting their fertility goals through offering safer conception services to minimize the risk of HIV transmission to uninfected partners and baby while keeping persons living with HIV healthy. Safer conception services are offered as a component of the clinical services available at the ISS clinic. In addition research is conducted to explore client and partner experiences of the safer conception intervention, and assessment will be done on how this intervention impacts providers and HIV care using mixed methods.
Principle Investigators: Dr. Lynn Mathews and Dr. Bosco Bwana Mwebesa
