The Tanzania Commission for AIDS (TACAIDS) authorised the National Bureau of Statistics
(NBS) to conduct the THIS. The THIS is the first household survey of its kind to be conducted in Tanzania.
The survey covered the Tanzania Mainland only.The main objective of the survey was to provide HIV/AIDS programme managers and policymakerswith information needed to guide planning and implementation of interventions, including resource mobilization and allocation, monitoring and evaluation of existing programmes, and designing new and effective strategies for combating the epidemic.
Before this survey, national HIV prevalence estimates depended entirely on data derived from
blood donors and pregnant women seeking antenatal care. Although this information from the surveillance system has been useful for monitoring the trends of HIV in Tanzania, the inclusion of HIV testingin the THIS offers the opportunity to better understand the magnitude and pattern of infection in the generalreproductive-age population in Tanzania. The THIS results are in turn expected to improve the calibrationof the annual sentinel surveillance data, so that trends in HIV infection can be more accurately
measured in the intervals between household surveys.
This report contains findings from the 2003-04 THIS collected from the households visited. The
survey was designed to produce regional estimates. The tables and text cover the most important indicatorsrelated to HIV/AIDS and should be of use to policymakers and programme administrators who needup-to-date data for evaluating their activities and planning future directions.
