The Government of the Republic of Zambia, through the Central Statistical Office and the Ministry of Health, National AIDS Council, and the University of Zambia, and with technical assistance from MEASURE Evaluation, conducted the 2009 national Zambia Sexual Behaviour Survey, the fifth in a series of such surveys to monitor knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors regarding HIV/AIDS in Zambia. The main objective of the survey is to obtain national estimates of a number of key indicators (including international standardized indicators) important to monitoring progress of the national HIV/AIDS/STDs programme.The survey provides indicators on HIV/AIDS/STI-related knowledge, attitudes, and sexual behaviour, as well as information on orphans and vulnerable children, and assistance to households and communities affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic. The 2009 survey provides national estimates that can be disaggregated by residence (rural/urban), age groups (adolescents, youths, young adults and adults), and by sex (males, females).
