The Sudan Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) was carried out in 2014, by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) Sudan in collaboration with the Ministry of Health as part of the global MICS programme, round 5. Technical support was provided by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) at national, regional and headquarter levels for quality assurance. A large partnership has been established for the conduct of MICS Sudan involving UNICEF, World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), World Food Program (WFP), and the Department for International Development (DfID) UK, who provided financial support.

The global MICS programme was developed by UNICEF in the 1990s as an international household survey programme to support countries in the collection of internationally comparable data on a wide range of indicators on the situation of children and women. MICS surveys measure key indicators that allow countries to generate data for use in policies and programmes, and to monitor progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other internationally agreed upon commitments.
