The Côte d’Ivoire Population-based HIV Impact Assessment 2017-2018 (CIPHIA), a household-based, national survey was conducted between August 2017 and March 2018 to measure the status of Côte d’Ivoire’s national HIV response. The CIPHIA survey offered home-based testing and counseling (HBTC) with the return of results and collected information about households and individuals’ backgrounds, as well as the uptake of HIV care and treatment services.
This survey is the first in Côte d’Ivoire to estimate the viral load (VL) suppression (VLS) among adults (defined as the population aged 15-64 years) living with HIV, and to estimate the size of specific populations that are key to the epidemic and response at the national level. It is also the first survey to assess the national coverage of antiretroviral therapy (ART), as well as HIV prevalence among children (defined as the population of individuals aged 0-14 years) of mothers who were HIV positive or whose status was unknown. The results provide information on national and subnational progress towards control of the HIV epidemic.
