Summary

In this article, the authors utilize empirical evidence on the impact of integration on coverage rates and costs to model the impact of integrating services to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) with antenatal clinic sites on infant HIV infections averted, and also the impact of integrating family planning services into HIV care facilities. Incremental cost-effectiveness ratios for a number of different scenarios were calculated using the LiST model for Malawi, Mozambique and Uganda. Based on this modeling, integration strategies were thought to be cost- effective. The authors conclude that, although few empirical results exist regarding the incremental cost-effectiveness ratios associated with integrating HIV and MNCH services, the modeled evidence confirms that there are, indeed, significant benefits to integration.
