HIV Prevalence: Data from the 2010 Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey.
DHS ANALYTICAL STUDIES 32 - This report examines the possible bias in national estimates of standard Roll Back Malaria (RBM) indicators of insecticide-treated mosquito net (ITN) ownership and use. The analysis uses GPS data for 18 sub-Saharan African countries to correlate these measures with levels of malaria endemicity and seasonality and to recalculate coverage estimates based on the population at risk. The report proposes an approach to identifying populations at risk of malaria that countries could use to produce subnational estimates that account for variations in malaria endemicity or seasonality.
This report summarizes the findings of the 2010 Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (RDHS). The 2010 Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (RDHS) was designed to provide data for monitoring the population and health situation in Rwanda. The 2010 RDHS is the fifth Demographic and Health Survey to be conducted in Rwanda (DHS in 1992, 2000, and 2005 and Interim DHS in 2007-08). The objective of the survey was to provide up-to-date information on fertility, family planning, childhood mortality, nutrition including anemia testing, maternal and child health, domestic violence, malaria including malaria testing, maternal mortality, awareness and behavior regarding HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections, and HIV prevalence.
L’Enquête sur la Prestation des services de Santé du Rwanda de 2007 (EPSR) décrit comment le secteur formel de la santé du Rwanda fournit les servicesde planification familiale, de santé maternelle et infantile, de paludisme, de VIH/sida et d’autres maladies transmissibles.
Policy brief based on the 2007 Rwanda Service Provision Assessment (RSPA) survey. The 2007 RSPA survey describes how the formal health sector in Rwanda provides services for family planning, maternal health, child health, malaria, HIV/AIDS, and other communicable diseases.
The 2007 Rwanda Service Provision Assessment (RSPA) was a national representative survey conducted in 538 health facilities throughout Rwanda. The survey covered hospitals, health centers, dispensaries and
health posts, including all public facilities such as government and government-assisted health facilities. The 2007 RSPA used interviews with health service providers and clients and observations of provider client consultations to obtain information on the capacity of facilities to provide quality services and the existence of functioning systems to support quality services. The areas addressed were the overall facility
infrastructure, maternal and child health, reproductive health, tuberculosis, malaria services; and services for sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS. The objective was to assess the strengths and
weaknesses of the infrastructure and systems supporting these services, and to assess the adherence to standards in the delivery of services.
La deuxième Enquête sur la prestation des services de soins de santé du Rwanda (EPSR-II), réalisée en 2007, est une enquête représentative au niveau national au cours de laquelle un échantillon de 538 établissements de santé ont été enquêtés. L’enquête a couvert les ôpitaux, les centres de santé, les dispensaires et les postes de santé et a inclus tous les établissements publics, qu’ils appartiennent au secteur gouvernemental ou Agréé, et la plupart des établissements privées. L’EPSR-II a collecté des informations sur les capacités des
établissements à fournir des services de qualité ainsi que sur l’existence de systèmes effectifs garantissant des services de qualité, par le biais d’interviews effectuées auprès des prestataires de santé et des patients ainsi que par le biais d’observations de consultations de patients ; ces informations concernent essentiellement l’infrastructure d’ensemble de l’établissement ainsi que les services de santé maternelle, infantile, de santé de la reproduction, de tuberculose, du paludisme, des infections sexuellement transmissibles (IST) et du VIH/sida. L’objectif de cette étude est, d’une part, d’évaluer les forces et faiblesses de l’infrastructure et des systèmes de support de ces services et, d’autre part, d’évaluer le niveau d’adhésion des prestataires aux standards de prestation des services.
The main objective of the 2014-15 RDHS was to obtain current information on demographic and health indicators, including family planning; maternal mortality; infant and child mortality; nutrition status of mothers and children; prenatal care, delivery, and postnatal care; childhood diseases; and pediatric immunization. In addition, the survey was designed to measure indicators such as domestic violence, the prevalence of anemia and malaria among women and children, and the prevalence of HIV infection in Rwanda. For the first time, this 2014-15 RDHS also includes indicators to monitor HIV testing among children age 0-14 as well as domestic violence for males age 15-59.
The 2013 RMIS is a nationally representative, household-based survey that provides data on malaria indicators, which are used to assess the progress of a malaria control program. The primary objective of the 2013 Rwanda Malaria Indicator Survey (2013 RMIS) was to provide up-to date information on the prevention of malaria to policymakers, planners, and researchers.
