The Lesotho Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (LePHIA) 2016-2017 was a nationally representative, cross-sectional, population-based survey of households across Lesotho.
LePHIA focused on measuring key biological endpoints to provide direct estimates of HIV infection risk and burden, and of the effectiveness and population-level impact of the HIV-related prevention, care, and treatment interventions implemented in the country.
LePHIA is the first national survey to conduct these measurements in Lesotho. The survey also collected information on behaviors associated with HIV infection, such as external migration and gender-based violence (GBV).
