This survey was conducted as part of the Gavi Full Country Evaluation (FCE) project in Uganda. Gavi FCEs are prospective studies covering the period 2013-2016 that aim to assess the barriers to and drivers of immunization program performance. The Uganda FCE Household Survey was conducted in 19 districts purposely selected to overlap with districts where the FCE Health Facility Survey was conducted in 2014-2015. The initial sample size for the household survey was 3,990 households. Data were collected from heads of households and mothers and/or primary caregivers of children ages 0-59 months. Topics covered include household characteristics, immunization knowledge, birth histories of mothers and child caretakers, pregnancy and postnatal care, child feeding practices, current health and vaccine status of the child, and vaccination experience at health facilities. In a sub-sample of children, a small amount of blood was collected in order to measure vaccine presence.
