The main objective of the 2015-16 TDHS-MIS was to obtain the current and reliable information on demographic and health indicators with regard to family planning, fertility levels and preferences, maternal mortality, infant and child mortality, nutritional status of mothers and children, antenatal care, delivery care, and childhood immunizations and diseases. In addition, the survey was designed to provide up-to-date information on the prevalence of anaemia among women age 15-49 and the prevalence of malaria infection and anaemia among children under age 5. Unlike the previous DHS surveys, the 2015-16 TDHSMIS included a comprehensive module on malaria, which is usually included in the Tanzania HIV and Malaria Indicators surveys. This survey did not include questions and tests on HIV/AIDS because they will certainly be included in future HIV/AIDS surveys.
