Globally, health-related information is one of the main pillars of any national health system, which enables policy makers in making evidence-based decisions, planning and resource allocation, program monitoring and evaluation, strengthening of the healthcare delivery system, and development of the community as a whole. In the modern era, different sources of health information have been utilized on the basis of the objective to be fulfilled. However, most of those routine sources do not provide the required comprehensive insights about health and disease in the community, which mark the need for population-based surveys to supplement the routinely collected data and statistics. In conclusion, population-based health survey is an indispensable managerial tool to obtain comprehensive health information, and thus play a crucial role in the strengthening of the healthcare delivery system.
