The first Swaziland HIV Incidence Measurement Survey (SHIMS) was conducted in 2010-11 to measure the impact of the country’s national HIV response on HIV incidence.

From August 2016-March 2017, SHIMS2, the follow-up household-based survey, was conducted to measure progress on HIV incidence and viral load suppression. The survey team visited over 6,000 households and interviewed over 11,500 adults (15 years and older) and 3,500 children (0-14 years) to collect this information.

From May-November 2021, SHIMS3, the second follow-up household-based survey, was conducted to measure progress on HIV viral load suppression. The survey team visited over 7,000 households and interviewed over 11,000 adults (15 years and older) to collect this information.

A new study co-authored by Jessica Justman, MD, Senior Technical Director at ICAP at Columbia University and Associate Professor of Medicine in Epidemiology at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health, captures the evolution and variation of the HIV epidemic over space and time in sub-Saharan Africa by using detailed provincial- and district-level maps of HIV prevalence in each country, down to the level of a small city.
