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.
