Greater Eldoret Health and Development Survey (Round 1) 2004
Other Household Health Survey
The data collected in the first round of the survey and summarized in this report are primarily intended to describe the socio-economic characteristics of survey households. The cross-sectional data alone do not enable us to properly evaluate the dynamic impacts of antiretroviral treatment. The data collected in the second round of the survey (as well as future rounds) will provide the longitudinal information necessary for examining changes in socio-economic status resulting from treatment. Subsequent analysis will therefore address the topic of treatment impacts more extensively. Future work will also examine other diseases in the survey area as well.
