Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Ethical clearance for the execution of this study was obtained from the AIDS Support Organisation Institutional Review Committee in Uganda (TASOREC/04/17-UG-REG-009). Written informed consent was obtained from all health workers taking part in the study in both districts and from all caretakers in Dokolo. Separate information letters were developed for the observation of caretakers as well as the observation and interviewing of health workers. In this, participants were informed about the purpose of the study, voluntariness of participation and the right of disruption at any time. The informed consent letter addressing caretakers was translated into relevant local languages and read aloud to caretakers waiting for services as illiteracy among women in rural areas is rather common [CitationRef removed]. When called up for the vaccination service, caretakers were given the opportunity to ask questions and consent to participation by filling in a signature sheet.
