: The project involves only secondary analysis of existing survey data obtained from Demographic and Health Surveys. All datasets are publicly available and human subjects are anonymous. The DHS Program uses strict standards and procedures to protect the privacy and confidentiality of survey respondents. These procedures include obtaining verbal informed consent which the interviewers record in the questionnaire and also sign to attest that the prescribed consent statement was read to the respondent. The DHS Program was reviewed and approved by the ICF International Institutional Review Board to ensure compliance with the US Department of Health and Human Services regulation for the protection of human subjects (45 CFR 46).
