The 2014-2015 Rwanda DHS Final Report states, "These surveys provide national, population-based trend data on HIV prevalence among women age 15-49 and men age 15-59. In addition, for the first time, the 2014-15 RDHS included HIV testing of children age 0-14."

Is the HIV testing among children in this survey also population-representative, i.e., can the characteristics of the HIV-positive children be examined in the same way that those of the HIV-positive adults were, by sex, urban/rural residence, province, etc?

Thanks so much!
