Spectrum is a suite of easy to use policy models which provide policymakers with an analytical tool to support decision making processes. Spectrum was used in modelling the magnitude of the HIV epidemic and the demographic, social and economic impacts in Swaziland. The projections were generated by a Mutisectoral Estimates and Projections Core Team led by NERCHA, in 2015.
The Swaziland Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys IV and V are nationally representative surveys of households, children, women and men. The main objective of the surveys is to provide up to date information for assessing the situation of children, women and men in Swaziland. Another objective is to furnish data needed for monitoring progress towards the goals established at the World Summit for Children and the Millennium Development Goals. The findings of the surveys are utilised by government and development partners for planning and monitoring programme implementation.
