Integration of Nutrition Indicators into Ghana’s HIV and Tuberculosis Monitoring and Evaluation System

publication cover

Since 2010, the Ghana Health Service has been integrating nutrition assessment, counseling, and support (NACS) into routine HIV services. In December 2011, a rapid review of 11 NACS pilot sites in Ghana was conducted to assess the sites’ strengths, challenges, and opportunities to inform the scale-up of NACS. One of the review’s key recommendations was to integrate nutrition indicators into the routine HIV monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system. This report summarizes the steps FANTA and the Ghana Health Service took to strengthen efforts to integrate nutrition indicators into HIV and tuberculosis M&E systems for effective tracking of progress and decision making at the different levels of service delivery.
