In 1997, the National Committee on Traditional Practices in Ethiopia (NCTPE), now EGLDAM), conducted a nationwide Baseline Survey on HTP (BLS) in Ethiopia (NCTPE 1998) and also produced a book based on it (NCTPE 2003). The Baseline Survey is 10 years old. The need to update the information base for further action was critically felt by all partners. Accordingly, EGLDAM launched a Follow up Survey (FUS) with financial support from the Norwegian Embassy and administration support from Save the Children Norway (SCN).

The main objective of the FUS was "to examine/measure changes observed on prevalence, knowledge, attitude, intention and behavior... towards HTP (harmful traditional practices) at national level and to recommend appropriate strategies in future directions".
The relationships between HTP and the myriad background factors are complex. The FUS was envisaged as not only documenting the situation 10 years after the BLS but also as an attempt to document changes and their determinants.
