Mochudi Clinic 1 is a peri-urban facility, situated close to Mochudi village, which is 37 km north-east of Gaborone, Botswana’s capital. Prior to the site’s induction into the SRHR and HIV Linkages Pilot Programme, Mochudi Clinic 1 ran as a clinic with maternity services. It had a compliment of nurse-midwives and general nurses, lay counsellors, auxiliary nurses and a health education assistant. Doctors were available for consultation on Mondays and Fridays. An unserviced caravan in the grounds was used for meetings by Gaonosi, a PLHIV group. Induction into the programme resulted in the improvement of the clinic’s infrastructure, its staff and overall capacity through training and partnership. Under the SRHR and HIV Linkages Pilot Programme, Mochudi Clinic 1 operationalised the Supermarket Model of integration.
