The Rwanda Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) 2014-2015 is part of Phase 7 of the DHS series, a comprehensive, nationally representative household survey series. For the 2014-2105 Rwanda DHS, 13,497 women ages 15-49 and 5,585 men ages 15-59 were successfully interviewed from 12,793 households. In the subsample of households not select for the male survey, women and children ages 6 months to 5 years were tested for anemia and malaria, and height and weight measurements were taken from women and children 0-5 years. In the subsample of respondents not selected to receive the male questionnaire, blood tests were done for HIV and anthropometric measurements were taken from men. In two separate 50% subsamples of households selected for the male survey, the domestic violence module for men and the domestic violence for women, respectively, were implemented. Blood samples were collected for HIV testing from children ages 0-14 in 1/3 of the households selected for the male survey.
