: This study mainly uses previously published data from peer-reviewed articles and official documents. Expert elicitation was the only data source that involved primary data collection. We sought prior opinion from the ethical committee of the College of Medicine and Health Sciences of the University of Rwanda. A formal ethical application was not submitted because no personally sensitive data was collected during expert elicitation, apart from the names and employers of the respondents, which were kept with confidentiality.
