The Malawi Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (MPHIA) 2015-2016 was a nationally representative, cross-sectional, population-based survey of households across Malawi.
It focused on measuring key biological endpoints to provide direct estimates of HIV infection risk and burden, and on the effectiveness and population-level impact of the HIV-related prevention, care, and treatment interventions implemented in the country.
The MPHIA is the first national survey to conduct these measurements in Malawi. The survey also collected information on behaviors associated with HIV acquisition and transmission, common HIV co-morbidities, and other health conditions.
