Using Maps for Prevention, Planning, and Targeting Experiences from Swaziland
Using Maps for Prevention,
Planning, and Targeting
Experiences from Swaziland
Swaziland has the highest HIV
prevalence in the world (26% of
adults ages 15–49).
Understanding spatial variations in
HIV prevalence at a granular level
allows Swaziland to strategically
target its prevention efforts.
Value Added of this Approach
Population-based surveys are expensive to
These surveys do not happen routinely.
Sample sizes do not allow you to estimate at
lower administrative levels.
This methodology produces HIV prevalence estimates
at the lowest level of granularity and allows for
continuous monitoring of the epidemic through the
use of routinely available data.
