Summary 

The Global School-Based Health Survey was designed to provide accurate data on health behaviors and protective factors among students, including dietary behaviors, hygiene, physical activity, drug and alcohol use, and sexual behaviors. It is often used to help countries develop priorities, establish programs and advocate for resources for school health programs, policies and youth health.

In Zambia, a two-stage cluster sample design was used to create a representative sample of students grades 7-10. A total of 50 schools were selected and 47 participated. Out of 3,021 eligible students, 2,257 participated in the survey, giving an overall response rate of 70%.
