The purpose of the 2016 NDHS was to generate reliable information on fertility; family planning; adult and child mortality; maternal and child health; nutrition; women’s empowerment and domestic violence; knowledge of HIV and AIDS; and other health issues. Data collection for the survey was carried out from June 19, 2016, to January 31, 2017. This report, which presents key findings from the 2016 NDHS, is intended to provide policy makers and program managers with a first glimpse of the survey results. A more comprehensive, detailed report is scheduled for late 2017.
