The first Zimbabwe Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (ZIMPHIA) was conducted between October 2015 and August 2016.

Survey teams visited over 11,000 households to interview participants and provide HIV counseling and testing.

In 2019, a second ZIMPHIA survey was launched by the Ministry of Health to assess the country’s progress towards HIV epidemic control. The ZIMPHIA 2020 survey is currently in its post-data collection phase.
