Strengthening Services for People Living with HIV: Building an Effective, Integrated TB/HIV Approach in Angola

Publication

Until recently, TB and HIV have been treated separately under Angola’s National TB Control Program (NCTB) and the National Institute for the Fight Against AIDS (INLS).

In support of TB/HIV service integration, the Health for All (HFA) project provided coordination and advocacy at the national level to align NCTB and INLS goals, infrastructural support to facilities to ensure that they have the necessary supplies to offer services, and capacity building to providers to deliver comprehensive TB/HIV services in all seven health facilities supported by the project. Between April 2017 and June 2019, the HFA project saw an increase in the capacity of the health units to provide effective and integrated HIV/TB services.
