Dear DHS team,

Searching for DHS surveys via survey characteristics yields Zambia 2013-2014 as having HIV incidence information. However when I download the HIV dataset it does not contain a variable for incidence but only has blood test results and CD4 count results. I was wondering if I should be looking for this variable elsewhere? In Mozambique 2015 AIS recency is coded as "SLAGRECN"

I am attaching a screenshot from the survey search below.

Thank you in advance for your kind help.

Salome

Following is a response from DHS Project Manager, Joy Fishel:

Incidence data is not available for the 2013-14 Zambia DHS. We were never able to complete the incidence testing (the recency assay). An odd survey design, negotiated with CDC, produced a very biased population base for the venous blood collection that was required for the testing.
