Description
South Africa is undergoing a process of epidemiological transition from infectious to non‐communicable diseases (NCDs). Reliable estimates of population health parameters are therefore essential to understand the nature of the changing disease profile and translate such information into effective health promotion and disease prevention programmes.

The 2012 South African National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (SANHANES–I) is the first of a series of surveys designed to assess the health and nutritional status of adults and children in South Africa. The survey is unique in that it com¬bines personal interviews with standardised physical examinations, diagnostic procedures, and a variety of laboratory tests. The results provide information on a broad range of health topics and associated risk factors which were beyond the scope of previous Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS). The SANHANES data address the National Department of Health’s priority health indicators and will produce national references for such measurements as height, weight, and blood pressure. The findings presented in this report will be of interest to both health practitioners and researchers.
