This study was undertaken primarily to understand what effect the efforts to integrate family planning and VCT services in health facilities had on health care providers' work and service delivery practices in two regions of Ethiopia: Oromia and Amhara. A secondary objective of the study was to identify what factors facilitated the integration of family planning services into existing VCT services in participating health facilities in these regions.
