Ten years after the baseline study of harmful traditional practices (HTP) in Ethiopia, a decision was made by the Board of EGLDAM to conduct a follow up survey in order “to examine/measure changes observed on prevalence, knowledge, attitude, intentions and behavior… toward HTP at national level, and to recommend appropriate strategies”.

With financial support provided by the Norwegian Agency for International Development (NORAD), EGLDAM conducted an extensive survey covering all regional states and almost all ethnic groups of the country. The study involved over 65 thousand participants, and lasted a little more than one year. The survey method was carefully designed to reach as much as possible the same study sites and ethnic groups that were included in the 1997 baseline survey. There was also little change in data collecting procedures, and the number of subjects involved in the survey only exceeded the baseline, thus ensuring high credibility to the findings.
