The Zambia Health and Wellbeing Survey (H-Well) is the first Violence Against Children and Youth Survey (VACS) conducted in the country.

The Government of Zambia led the implementation of the VACS in 2014 with support from UNICEF, PEPFAR, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The government released the policy brief with key preliminary findings of the H-WELL survey in 2015. The findings were featured by UNICEF ESARO in the launch of the regional campaign on violence against children held in South Africa in November 2015.

The government launched the final VACS report in 2018.
