Summary 

The STEPS Noncommunicable Disease Risk Factors Survey uses a survey methodology developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to help countries establish noncommunicable disease surveillance systems. The methodology prescribes three steps—questionnaire, physical measurements, and biochemical measurements. Core topics covered by most surveys are demographics, health status, and health behaviors. These provide data on socioeconomic risk factors and metabolic, nutritional, and lifestyle risk factors. Details may differ from country to country and from year to year. 

This national survey in Togo collected information on tobacco and alcohol use, diet, physical activity, physical measurements, and blood pressure. Blood measurements of glucose and cholesterol levels were also collected from a subsample.

Only reports are currently available. No data have been released.
