Percent of clients at an HIV service delivery point who received a family planning method
The percent of individuals of reproductive age (15-49 for women and 15-54 for men) who were clients at an HIV-related service delivery point (SDP) who received a family planning (FP) method (e.g. condoms, pills, injectables).
This indicator is calculated as:
(Number of HIV-related SDP clients of reproductive age [15-49 for women; 15-54 for men) who received an FP method at an HIV SDP during the reporting period) / (Total number of clients of reproductive age served at the HIV-related SDP during the reporting period) x 100
Number of clients of reproductive age served at an HIV-related SDP during a given timeframe (i.e. monthly, quarterly, or annually) as well as the confirmation of how many received an FP method.
Service delivery statistics
Data can be disaggregated by:
- HIV service platforms, such as counseling and testing, care and treatment, prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT), key populations, and DREAMS
- Non-HIV focused service delivery platforms (e.g., FP-integrated school, community, or facility health programs) that are supported by PEPFAR
- Type of SDP (e.g., mobile service unit, hospital, or health center)
- Sex/age (male: <15, 15–19, 20–24, 25+; female: <15, 15–19, 20–24, 25+)
- Rural/urban location
- Type of FP method provided
- HIV status (e.g., HIV-positive or -negative status)
- Relationship status (i.e., not in a relationship; with seroconcordant/serodiscordant partner)
The focus of this indicator is to monitor FP service delivery. This indicator measures provision of an FP method to male and female clients within HIV SDPs. Data from this indicator can inform changes in the demand for and use of FP services over time.
For more information on this indicator, see “Monitoring the Integration of Family Planning and HIV Services: A Manual to Support the Use of Indicators to Measure Progress toward PEPFAR’s 90-90-90 Targets and Protect Women’s Reproductive Rights” (MEASURE Evaluation, 2016).
This indicator assumes that screening for FP needs and FP counseling have occurred prior to FP method provision. Unfortunately, although each HIV SDP should maintain a record of services provided to clients, FP information is sometimes not well-recorded for HIV SDPs, making it difficult to accurately measure service delivery.
Data collection for this indicator allows for monitoring changes in FP service delivery over time but provides no direct information on the quality of FP/HIV service delivery integration. Over-reporting may occur if individuals outside of the specific age range (15–49 for women and 15–54 for men) are included. Poor documentation of FP services and methods provided to clients can lead to under-reporting. Also, the HIV SDPs that only distribute condoms may be included in this indicator.
