  • Description:
    It is with great pleasure that we launch this report, which presents the major findings of the inaugural 2007 Kenya AIDS Indicator Survey (KAIS). This was truly a Kenyan study, planned, conducted and documented by a team of survey experts, technical advisors and government officials for the people of Kenya. KAIS is the first national, population_based survey anywhere in the world that included testing for CD4 cells among those infected with HIV, a measure that is critical for understanding the HIV epidemic and planning prevention, care and treatment services. Additionally, for the first time in a national sero_prevalence survey, KAIS covered both women and men aged 50_64 years, typically considered to be at low risk and to have low burden of HIV. The objective of this survey was to provide comprehensive information on indicators of HIV/AIDS that build upon and go beyond the 2003 Kenya Demographic Health Survey. In 2003, the prevalence of HIV, coverage of HIV testing and data on discordant couples provided important benchmarks for comparison with future studies. In 2007, we included questions on perceived HIV status, awareness of partner HIV status, and utilization of HIV care and treatment. With this 2007 KAIS report, policymakers, programme planners and researchers will be able to plan HIV services and monitor and evaluate their efforts more effectively. KAIS has provided the Government with valuable information as it continues to better understand, prevent and manage this disease for the well_being of Kenyans. We wish to acknowledge the contributions of a number of organizations. The survey and report could not have been accomplished without them. We would like to recognize the National AIDS and STI Control Programme (NASCOP), the National AIDS Control Council (NACC), the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS), the National Public Health Laboratory Service (NPHLS), the National Coordinating Agency for Population and Development (NCAPD) and the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI). We are grateful to the hundreds of survey personnel who devoted many hours to conduct this survey. For their technical assistance and financial support, we wish to thank the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the United Nations through UNAIDS and World Health Organization (WHO).

    The 2007 KAIS was made possible through technical and financial support from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the CDC and USAID and by United Nations through UNAIDS and WHO.
