The Mozambique Population-based HIV Impact Assessment (PHIA), INSIDA 2021, was a household-based national survey conducted between April 2021 and February 2022 to measure the impact of the country’s national and provincial HIV response, including progress towards achieving the UNAIDS 95-95-95 targets.
INSIDA 2021 offered HIV counseling and testing with return of results and collected information about uptake of HIV care and treatment services. The survey estimated national HIV incidence as well as the national and provincial HIV prevalence among adults (defined as individuals aged 15 years and older) and the prevalence of viral load suppression (VLS), defined as HIV RNA <1,000 copies per mL of blood among adults living with HIV.
The survey also collected data on selected behaviors associated with HIV acquisition and transmission, the uptake of HIV care and treatment services, as well as information on common HIV comorbidities and other health conditions.
The results of INSIDA 2021 provide critical information about national and district-level progress toward control of the HIV epidemic.
