Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Before data collection, permission was granted by the Burkinabe National Health Ministry, and ethical approval was granted from the ethical review committees in Burkina Faso (Comité d’Ethique et de Déontologie) and Germany (Medical School of Heidelberg). Declaration of written consent was obtained from each woman before starting the interview. The respondents did not receive any incentives; however, they were taught about the use of BSE and the detection of breast cancer symptoms after the interview. Finally, the questionnaires and the informed consent form were marked with an individual number to ensure anonymity.
