The first phase of the study is a formative evaluation of fertility planning and decision making through qualitative in-depth interviews with male and female HIV clients (and their partners) in Uganda who have either recently conceived a child or have an intention to conceive. HIV, family planning, and traditional healers are also interviewed to examine knowledge, attitudes and practices related to childbearing support services for persons living with HIV/AIDS. Phase 2 is an observational cohort study of 400 persons living with HIV/AIDS with fertility intentions who are followed for 24 months to assess determinants of use of contraception and pre-conception risk reduction methods. Providers are also surveyed longitudinally to assess changes in knowledge, attitudes, practices and structural barriers regarding provision of safer conception support over time.
