This report presents three initiatives, in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, that have used an integrated approach to HIV prevention and treatment, combining traditional and biomedical health systems. In resource poor countries, traditional healers become part of the solution, helping provide a comprehensive response to the challenges of the disease, particularly when provided with adequate training.
