Child Health. Demographic Household Survey Brochures

Publications

Egypt Demographic and Health Surveys (EDHS) have been conducted in Egypt since 1988 to provide information to policy makers and researchers about the health situation in the country.

Policy makers, therefore, can use data from the EDHS series to monitor and evaluate current family planning and health status, and also plan future health-related strategies.
