Video: Interview with Martin Vaessen, Former Director of The DHS Program

We sat down with Martin Vaessen, former director of The DHS Program, to hear his thoughts about the past 30 years of The DHS Program. Martin is a demographer and survey specialist with more than 35 years of experience providing technical assistance in all phases of survey implementation in developing countries. He was instrumental in achieving the incorporation of HIV testing in the  Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), an innovation that led to a revision of the estimated number of people living with HIV from 40 million to 33 million in 2007.
