Short Name: 
Naimibia 2013 DHS 

The 2013 Namibia Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS) serves as a periodic update of the demographic and health situation in Namibia. This is the fourth comprehensive, national-level population and health survey conducted in Namibia as part of the global Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) programme.

The 2013 NDHS was implemented by the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS) in collaboration with the Namibia Statistics Agency (NSA) and the National Institute of Pathology (NIP). Technical support was provided by ICF International, with financial support from the Government of Namibia, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Global Fund.

The overall objective of the survey was to provide demographic, socioeconomic, and health data necessary for policymaking, planning, monitoring, and evaluation at both the national and regional levels.
