As Communicated by the Central Statistical Agency, the official Mini-Demographic and Health Survey 2014 is released for utilization. The 2014 Mini Ethiopia Demographic and Health Survey (EMDHS) was conducted by the Central Statistical Agency (CSA) under the sponsorship and guidance of the Ministry of Health. The main objective of the survey was to collect population-based data on key demographic indicators that support the monitoring and evaluation needs for Phase IV of the Ethiopia Health Sector Development Program.
It is envisaged that the survey would provide a basis for measuring the progress of the health sector goals set under the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) and that is also closely aligned to the Millennium Development Goals (MDG). Specifically, the 2014 EMDHS was conducted to obtain current information on: contraceptive prevalence; maternity care indicators, including at least one antenatal visit, and skilled birth attendance at delivery; and, data to measure specific MDG indicators.
The survey result has been believed to have paramount importance, particularly to keep the pace of development in the health sector interventions. To download the document Click here
