This survey covers both mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar. Blood samples for HIV and malaria testing were taken from consenting male and female participants. Children ages 6-59 months were also tested for anemia and malaria.

Two questionnaires were used, one for households and one for individuals. The questions were based on Measure DHS AIDS Indicators Survey and Malaria Indicator Survey.
