: Ethical clearance was secured from Mekelle University‘s ethical review committee (ERC 1432/2018) and permission to carry out the study was obtained from the Tigray Regional State Health Bureau. Informed oral consent was obtained from caregivers to proceed with the data collection process after they had been briefed on the purpose of the study, benefit and risk, anonymity, confidentiality and their right to decline to answer any question or withdraw from the discussion or interview at any time. Utmost care was taken to maintain the confidentiality and privacy of the participants. Due to the literacy level of the primary caregivers, verbal consent was preferred in our context without violating the ethical principles and it was approved by the ethical review committee.
