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.

From Arm to Freezer: PHIA Project Laboratory Network Supports Ambitious HIV Testing Targets
The Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (PHIA) Project, which relies on laboratory testing of blood samples as a core component, is providing answers to these questions. Led by ICAP at Columbia University, the PHIA surveys will assess the HIV epidemic in 13 select countries located primarily in sub-Saharan Africa. Fieldwork is nearly complete in three countries, with ten more national surveys to follow over the next two to three years.
