The Egypt Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) in rural areas covered by the Integrated Perinatal Health and Child Nutrition Program (IPHN) 2013-2014 is part of MICS5, an international survey initiative to monitor the situation of children and women. Topics commonly covered in MICS include immunization, education, child and maternal health, family planning and knowledge of HIV/AIDS. MICS also provides data for tracking progress toward Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), particularly those related to health, education and mortality. The 2013-2014 Egypt IPHN MICS was conducted in 160 rural Family Health Unit catchment areas covered by the Integrated Perinatal Health and Child Nutrition Program (IPHN) and is representative of the rural areas covered under IHPN. For the 2013-2014 Egypt IHPN Rural MICS, 5,847 ever married women ages 15-49 were interviewed from 7,046 households. Additionally, 5,090 questionnaires for children under five were completed.
