The COVID-19 Health Services Disruption Survey 2020 is a series of surveys developed to assess the level of disruption to a range of health services resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent government mandates and changes in behavior to mitigate the spread of the disease.

This survey was conducted by ORB International via telephone interview using nationally representative samples in Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa. Respondents were individual members of the general population. Data were collected from 3,058 respondents. The survey focused on the level of disruption to the provision of general and reproductive health services, including access to medication and family planning.

The survey was developed specifically to assess the change in levels of service delivery prior to, and immediately following, the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Data generated from this survey is not intended to be used as an overall estimate of the level of health service delivery.
