"This publication provides guidance on adapting health services to address the sexual and reproductive health needs of women living with HIV/AIDS and integrating these activities within the health system. Providers of HIV services should also be aware of the sexual and reproductive health needs of the people they serve and integrate these interventions into a broad, comprehensive service delivery package.
This publication addresses these specific needs and related interventions. It contains recommendations for counselling, care and other interventions that are based on the available scientific evidence and accumulated programmatic experience and supplemented by expert opinion where evidence is lacking or inconclusive.

This publication primarily targets national-level programme planners and managers responsible for designing HIV programmes and comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services for women. It may also be a useful resource for health care workers involved in efforts to improve the sexual and reproductive health of women and to provide treatment and care for women living with HIV/AIDS. It is part of a series of modules being developed by WHO and its partners comprising guidelines on care, treatment and support for women living with HIV/AIDS and their children in resource-constrained settings. WHO will regularly review the evidence base for these guidelines and issue updated recommendations when warranted by new information."
