This report highlights the findings of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey
conducted by the Zimbabwe National Statistics Agency between February
and April 2014. MICS is an international household survey programme that
was developed by UNICEF after the 1990 World Summit for Children, to assist
countries in filling data gaps for monitoring human development in general
and the situation of children and women in particular. Since its inception,
MICS has been conducted in more than 100 countries. In Zimbabwe, a customized version of the MICS, the Multiple Indicator Monitoring Survey, was first conducted in 2009. The MICS is designed to collect information on a large number of indicators required for monitoring the goals and targets of the Millennium Declaration, the World Fit for Children Declaration and Plan of Action, the goals of the United Nations General Assembly Special Session on HIV/AIDS (UNGASS) and the African Summit on Malaria. It measures close to half of the indactors for the
Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) covering nutrition; child and maternal mortality, health, child protection and development; education; reproductive health and sexual behaviour
