Ethics approval and consent to participate
: The Nepal Health Research Council (Ref: 889) and University College London Research Ethics Committee (2257/001) approved the study. Cluster representatives gave written informed consent for study implementation. Informed verbal consent was taken from individual women due to high levels of illiteracy, and consent was also taken from a guardian where the participant was under the age of 16 years old. These consent procedures were approved by both ethics committees. A Data Monitoring Committee meeting in November 2011 recommended that the trial be completed as intended. A final Data Monitoring Committee was convened in January 2012. Our study adheres to CONSORT guidelines.
