**SORRY never mind I answered my own question--I didn't realize these are still DHS 7, not 8--my apologies!!**


First, as always, I must express my immense gratitude for this forum and to the users and experts of this DHS community who have helped me over the years.

My question today is about the new DHS 8 data for the HIV section in the women's and men's surveys. I looked at both the Zambia 2018 and Guinea 2018 data sets and could not find the variables for several of the new questions, specifically the questions asking about self-reported HIV status and the follow up questions (about ART use and stigma) for the folks who report being positive.

Was this data not collected for these two countries?

Thanks in advance for any clarification that can be provided!
