Part of Round 4 of the MICS series, the survey covers a large number of indicators related to the health of women and children. All prefectures were included by the survey except for Vakaga due to insecurity. As a result, Vakaga prefecture was removed from final analysis.

A total of four questionnaires were used including one for households; one for women between the age of 15 and 49 years; one for children under the age of 5 years, completed by primary caregivers; and one for men between the age of 15 and 59 years. Blood samples were taken for HIV testing from eligible participants.

Data collection occurred in all areas from July to September 2010 and then additional collection was conducted in areas where coverage was too low from December 2010 - January 2011.
