Ethics approval and consent to participate
: This study and all consent procedures were approved by ethical review boards of Makerere University School of Medicine (Kampala, Uganda) and the University of California, San Francisco (USA). All participants provided verbal informed consent at the CHC in their preferred language with fingerprint biometric confirmation of agreement. Verbal consent was provided in lieu of written consent as the CHC activities presented no more than minimal risk of harm to subjects and did not involve procedures for which written consent would otherwise be provided, and because of limited literacy in the study population.
