Summary

This report highlights ways to improve the health of women in South Africa as the HIV epidemic evolves. South Africa is decentralizing HIV services to the primary health care level, which the author sees as an opportunity to integrate HIV services, address women’s health, and to reduce maternal mortality. During the transitions from an emergency to a more sustainable response, the author recommends that PEPFAR address HIV-related goals by linking HIV with family planning (FP), reproductive health (RH), and maternal child health (MCH).
