Case studies

The following case studies have been developed from the pilot projects implemented within the scope of INTEGRATE to facilitate the implementation of integrated testing either within health care or community-based settings. Although pilot projects are context specific, these case studies provide valuable information about the approaches, outcomes challenges and lessons learnt in each respective setting and can be useful tools for other oganisations interested in implementing similar projects in their countries and settings.
