Integration in health can help achieve a more harmonious service delivery strategy that improves efficiency and cost effectiveness, and recognizes the holistic needs of the client. Integration in health has been defined in two principal ways. The first is between programming and/or funding of vertical interventions such as HIV/AIDS, TB, or family planning. The second is between these vertical interventions and a horizontal health systems strengthening agenda. The core question we strive to answer is: how can we move beyond rhetoric to real functional integration that improves population health outcomes? Our panel (speakers TBD) will explore this question by discussing how vertical HIV/AIDS programming has had a spillover effect on broader health systems strengthening efforts, what USAID and/or PEPFAR priorities are for integration, and where field projects have had success with integration, such as the Chemonics-implemented USAID project in Angola.
