This survey was conducted as a follow-up to the Eritrea Demographic and Health Survey 2002 but it was not claimed by Macro International as part of the DHS survey series. The purpose of this survey was to gather data in order to produce current indicators related to fertility, health, nutrition, HIV and AIDS, and other diseases.

The data were collected through questionnaires, measurements, and biological samples. The questionnaires included one on the household, one for men, one for women, a women's questionnaire on maternal mortality, and one on maternal mortality for the household. The household questionnaire was used to determine subject eligibility for a dried blood spot sample. It was also used to determine subjects for HIV testing within groups of women ages 15-49 and men ages 15-59. Measurements of height and weight were recorded for children under the age of 5 years.

The sample size for this survey was 34,423 households.
