Ethics approval and consent to participate
: The surveys were approved by the Ethics Committee of the Global MICS, USA and the National Research Ethics Committee of Ivory Coast. The study was based on the analysis of anonymized secondary datasets available in the public domain of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS). Before each interview is conducted, an informed consent statement is read to the respondent, who may accept or decline to participate. Most importantly, the informed consent statement emphasizes that participation is voluntary; that the respondent may refuse to answer any question or terminate participation at any time; and that the respondent’s identity and information will be kept strictly confidential.
