Myanmar Demographic and Health Survey (MDHS) is the first Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) to be carried out in Myanmar. This has been put into practice by the Ministry of Health and Sport (MOHS). The survey took place from 7 December 2015 to 7 July 2016. The MDHS was financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Three Millennium Development Goal Fund (3MDG).
The ICF International provided tecnical support through the DHS programme, which helps the Länder to collect information to control and assess demographic, sanitary and nutritional programmes. The MDHS 2015-16 results are presented in this KPIs. An extensive review of the figures will be presented in a concluding full text in early 2017.
MDHS 2015-16's main goal is to deliver up-to-date assessments of fundamental human and public safety data. In particular, MDHS gathered information on infertility, marriages, reproductive attitudes, consciousness and use of techniques of birth control, breast-feeding practice, diet, maternal and infant healthcare and death, HIV/AIDS consciousness and behaviour and other STI s, and other health-related questions such as tobacco and TB-knowing.
Since the MDHS study 2015-16 is the first DHS study in the state, no trends are analysed in this study. Information gathered by the MDHS is designed to help policy makers and programme leaders develop and evaluate programmes and policies to improve the state' s population' s wellbeing.
