The Namibia Population-Based HIV Impact Assessment (NAMPHIA) was a cross-sectional household-based survey conducted between June and December 2017 to assess the progress of Namibia’s national HIV response.
NAMPHIA offered participants HIV counseling and testing with return of results, and active linkage to care for those who tested HIV positive, and collected information on risk behaviors and uptake of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services.
This was the first time such a survey was conducted in Namibia among those aged 0 to 64 years. Results will inform policy for regional and national HIV interventions.
NAMPHIA was led by the Government of the Republic of Namibia through the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS), conducted with funding from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and technical assistance through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The survey was implemented by ICAP at Columbia University through a partnership with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and in collaboration with MOHSS, the Namibia Statistics Agency, and the Namibia Institute of Pathology.
