Integration of HIV Care and Treatment Into Antenatal Care in Migori District, Kenya
This study seeks to determine the most effective way to reach and provide pregnant women with accessible, comprehensive, and high quality HIV care and treatment.
This study uses a prospective cluster randomized design. Twelve clinics similar in size, population, and services in Migori district, Kenya that provide ANC have been randomly assigned to receive "integrated ANC, PMTCT & HIV services" (intervention arm) or "non-integrated services" (control arm). At the intervention clinics, pregnant women will receive ANC, PMTCT and HIV care and treatment (including HAART if required) at the same clinic visit from the ANC provider. At the control clinics, women will receive antenatal care and PMTCT services with referral to the HIV care and treatment department located in the same facility. The control sites more closely resemble the current approach followed for care and treatment of HIV-infected pregnant women in Kenya. The content of ANC, PMTCT, and HIV care will be the same in the two study arms and will follow current Kenyan national guidelines. The only difference between the two arms will be the provider/location of HIV care and treatment.
Outcomes will be compared for HIV-positive pregnant women who attend intervention versus control facilities. In addition we will conduct qualitative research with health care providers at the study health facilities in order to learn provider perspectives on the two service models and to explore the effects of integration on provider job satisfaction (including work load).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Delivery Of Health Care, Integrated
A health care system which combines physicians, hospitals, and other medical services with a health plan to provide the complete spectrum of medical care for its customers. In a fully integrated system, the three key elements - physicians, hospital, and health plan membership - are in balance in terms of matching medical resources with the needs of purchasers and patients. (Coddington et al., Integrated Health Care: Reorganizing the Physician, Hospital and Health Plan Relationship, 1994, p7)
Integrated Advanced Information Management Systems
A concept, developed in 1983 under the aegis of and supported by the National Library of Medicine under the name of Integrated Academic Information Management Systems, to provide professionals in academic health sciences centers and health sciences institutions with convenient access to an integrated and comprehensive network of knowledge. It addresses a wide cross-section of users from administrators and faculty to students and clinicians and has applications to planning, clinical and managerial decision-making, teaching, and research. It provides access to various types of clinical, management, educational, etc., databases, as well as to research and bibliographic databases. In August 1992 the name was changed from Integrated Academic Information Management Systems to Integrated Advanced Information Management Systems to reflect use beyond the academic milieu.
Ancillary Services, Hospital
Those support services other than room, board, and medical and nursing services that are provided to hospital patients in the course of care. They include such services as laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, and physical therapy services.
Inflammation of brain parenchymal tissue as a result of viral infection. Encephalitis may occur as primary or secondary manifestation of TOGAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; HERPESVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ADENOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; FLAVIVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; BUNYAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; PICORNAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; PARAMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; RETROVIRIDAE INFECTIONS; and ARENAVIRIDAE INFECTIONS.
Hospital Information Systems
Integrated, computer-assisted systems designed to store, manipulate, and retrieve information concerned with the administrative and clinical aspects of providing medical services within the hospital.
