The 2009 Zambia Sexual Behavior Survey (ZSBS) was the 5th of this series conducted in Zambia. The four previous ZSBS surveys were conducted in 1998, 2000, 2003, and 2005. The objective of the survey was to obtain national estimates for various indicators related to HIV, AIDS and STD program monitoring.

Two questionnaires were used, one for households and one for individuals. The household sample included 2,500 households of which 2,316 were enumerated. A total of 2,074 male and 2,206 female interviews were conducted. Males between the ages of 15 and 59 years and females between the age of 15 and 49 were eligible.
