Malawi Final Report 2020-2021

The Malawi Population-based HIV Impact Assessment 2020-2021 (MPHIA 2020-2021) was conducted from January 2020 through April 2021 to measure the impact of the national HIV response. (Note that there was a pause from April 2020 until March 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.) MPHIA 2020-2021 offered HIV counseling and testing with return of results to the participants and collected information about uptake of HIV care and treatment services.

MPHIA 2020-201 was the second survey to estimate national HIV incidence and the national and district-level prevalence of HIV and viral load suppression, defined as HIV RNA <1,000 copies per milliliter. The first MPHIA was conducted from November 2015 through August 2016. The results of these two surveys provide critical information about national and district-level progress toward control of the HIV epidemic.

The survey also collected information on selected behaviors associated with HIV acquisition and transmission, on common HIV comorbidities, and other health conditions.

This project is supported by the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through CDC under the terms of cooperative agreement #U2GGH002173. The findings and conclusions are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official position of the funding agencies.
