he 2014 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS) was designed to provide information to monitor and evaluate the population and health situations in Kenya and to be a follow-up to the previous KDHS surveys. In addition, it provides information on indicators previously not collected in KDHS surveys, such as fistula and men’s experience of domestic violence. Finally, the 2014 KDHS is the first such survey to provide estimates for selected demographic and health indicators at the county level. The specific objectives of the 2014 KDHS were to: Estimate fertility and childhood, maternal, and adult mortality; Measure changes in fertility and contraceptive prevalence; Examine basic indicators of maternal and child health; Collect anthropometric measures for children and women; Describe patterns of knowledge and behaviour related to transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections; and • Ascertain the extent and pattern of domestic violence and female genital cutting.
