The Manicaland Centre avails data, data summaries and analyses - quality research outputs - that aim to solve global health challenges.
Publications and Reports
Members of the Manicaland Centre publish in some of the most respected health and social science journals, as well as presenting at conferences and preparing reports.
Since the Centre was established, we have published more than 200 peer-reviewed articles in respectable health and social science journals. To make findings widely available we strive to provide free and open access to our publications.
Manicaland HIV Information Sheets
We regularly publicise information sheets summarising key trends of the HIV epidemic in Manicaland.
The information sheets compare and report on the main results from each of our sites on local patterns of HIV infection, experience of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), knowledge and awareness of HIV and other STDs, and sexual and health seeking behaviour between the baseline and the follow up surveys. Below you can access the information sheets for individual years.
COVID-19 HIV Risk Survey Reports
The COVID-19 HIV Risk Survey took place from Feburary to July 2021. Interim reports were produced as data was collected and can be accessed here.
Health Facility Survey Reports
The Manicaland Centre has conducted a number of health facility surveys to track trends in the development and availability of health services.
These look at health services in the two districts (Mutasa and Makoni) where most of the Manicaland Centre's study sites are located. The main findings from these surveys are summarised in reports which have been made available to local policy-makers and service providers in the study districts. Copies of the latest reports are available below.
Data generated by the Manicaland Project have been formed into datasets which you can access.
A selection of data generated by the Manicaland Project has been formed into a core dataset which contains a sample of socio-demographic, sexual behaviour and HIV testing variables from all 6 rounds of the main survey. In addition, any further data used in the production of recent academic publications is also freely available.
We have uploaded 'good practice' study guidelines that detail our experiences and recommendations.
We hope this will help to avoid a reinventing of the wheel, and allow for colleagues to further develop our study designs and findings in other contexts. This includes our guidelines for estimating the size and HIV prevalence of female sex worker population and a needs assessment for district monitoring & evaluation task forces in Zimbabwe.
