: This study obtained ethical approval from the WHO Ethical Review board and local ethical approval was also obtained from the Institutional Ethical Review Board of the University of Gondar (reference number VP/RCS/05/165 written on November 17, 2016). In addition, written informed consent will be sought from interview participants. Individuals who would like to participate will be asked to sign a consent form when they arrive at the scheduled event. Those who decline participation will not be included in the study.To maintain participant confidentiality, all identifying information will be removed from questionnaires and study documents. We will request for official permission from the district to access those records and we will also put a confidentiality agreement for this purpose to make sure that only information relevant to this study is extracted. As the data will be aggregated, there is no possibility of accessing individual level or identifiable data.
: No data from any individual person will be published, thus consent for publication will not be applicable. In writing reports and policy briefs, we will make sure participants will not be identified by the information they gave during key informant interviews. Participants will be also given the opportunity to review draft summaries of our reports before they are disseminated.
