Ethics approval and consent to participate
: We obtained approval from the National Health Research Ethics Committee of Nigeria (NHREC) in the Department of Planning Research and Statistic of the federal ministry of health, Nigeria, to conduct the survey using the available data at the health facilities, LGADSNO and state epidemiology offices. Verbal consent was given for the conduct of the interviews with all participants involved in the study.The relevant documents (consent form, protocol for study and data collection tools) were submitted to the national health research committee of Nigeria. The ethics committee after due consideration of the document considered that it met the criteria for exemption, which was granted. We used verbal against written consent because it provided us the opportunity to develop good rapport and initiate a confidence building discussion with the respondents.
