Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) assist countries in the collection and use of data to monitor and evaluate population, health, and nutrition programmes. DHS provide national and sub-national data on such issues as maternal and child health, child survival, HIV/AIDS/sexually transmitted infections (STIs), infectious diseases, reproductive health and nutrition. DHS can help to improve ongoing data collection and is committed to increasing understanding and use of survey data.

The Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) is a household survey programme developed by UNICEF to help countries fill data gaps when monitoring the situation of children and women.
