Objective To document lessons learned from an integrated Micronutrient Survey (MNS) and Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) in Malawi from 2015–2016.

Methods We conducted semi-structured, in-depth interviews with 26 individuals who planned and implemented the integrated MNS-DHS. We used purposive recruitment to ensure that we captured a diversity of views and interviewed individuals from each of the partner organizations. Interviews were conducted in-person or by telephone and audio recorded. We analyzed the data using thematic analysis to identify key themes related to the benefits, drivers of success, and challenges of an integrated MNS-DHS.
