We conducted in-depth interviews with a variety of healthcare providers (n=33) in Uganda to identify current services that could support and barriers to the provision of safer conception counseling (SCC). Consistent with their training and expertise, providers of all types reported provision of services for people living with a diagnosis of HIV or AIDS (PLHIV) who desire a child. Important barriers including a lack of service integration, poor communication between stakeholders and the absence of policy guidelines were identified. Drawing on these data, we propose a model of integrated care that includes both prevention of unplanned pregnancies and SCC services.
