Hi there it is my understanding that there in an ongoing DHS survey in Kenya currently.

Thanks.

Following is a response from the Kenya 2014 DHS country manager, Sara Head:

In the KDHS 2014:
No blood pressure
BMI calculated from ht/wt measurements among women only (ht/wt for children age 0-5 were also measured, but we don't calc children's BMI).
