This report summarises the findings of the 2003 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS) carried out by Central Bureau of Statistics in partnership with the Ministry of Health. ORC Macro provided financial and technical assistance for the survey through the USAID-funded MEASURE DHS+ programme, which is designed to assist developing countries to collect data on fertility, family planning, and maternal and child health. Additional funding for the KDHS was received from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the Department for International Development (DFID/U.K.), the Government of Japan through a fund managed by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The opinions expressed in this report are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the donor organisations.
