I am hoping to apply for access to DHS biomarker data.

It states on the biomarker lists collected on the website that certain DHS surveys collect C-Reactive Protein (CRP). I have looked for surveys that state they collect 'other biomarkers' (e.g. Uganda 2016 and Malawi 2015-16.) However, I was unable to find information on exactly which biomarkers they collected and if they collected CRP.


Would you be able to direct me to where I could find information on which surveys collect CRP and which participants (e.g. mothers or children) they collect it in? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

Thanks for your helpful reply. Could you tell me who it is with? Is it women or children?

Women, pre-schoolers, school age children and men (so four different datasets)
