Dear DHS users,

I have two questions. Maybe those questions have been asked elsewhere:

1) HIV was introduced in DHS since 2001. What is the country in which HIV tests were used for the first time in DHS?

2) GPS data were introduced in DHS since 1986. What is the country in which GPS data were used for the first time in DHS?

Thanks.

Dear User,
The first survey with HIV testing was Mali DHS 2001.
Benin DHS 1996 was the first survey that used actual GPS units to georeference the survey while Liberia 1986 was the first georeferenced dataset using gazetteers and some were from maps.
Thank you!
