Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (PHIA)

Project Details

ICAP is providing technical assistance to the Ministry of Health to conduct Population-based HIV Impact Assessments to assess HIV prevalence, incidence, and access to HIV prevention, care, and treatment services in Eswatini. Two national surveys, SHIMS 2011 and SHIMS2 (2015), have previously been conducted by the Ministry of Health with technical support from ICAP and funding by PEPFAR through CDC. A third survey, SHIMS3 2020, will be conducted to measure Eswatini’s progress towards global HIV targets. The survey includes household-based interviews and HIV counseling and testing for individuals 15 years and older. Survey findings will be used to assess the impact of Eswatini’s HIV response at the national level, and to help guide and target future investment and programs.
