Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Research clearance approval was obtained from the National Commission for Science, Technology and Innovation (NACOSTI/P/15/2335/5353; 2-Apr-2015). NACOSTI is a state corporation with the overall mandate to review and regulate the quality of science in the country and approve research studies. All study respondents provided informed written consent to participate in the study. Participants were further informed they could withdraw from the study at any moment without giving reason and that their data would be used anonymously. The confidentiality of information was maintained by excluding personal identifiers (which are used in the narrative quotes) and by conducting the interview in a private place. Informed consent from adolescents below 18 years (in this case they were three mothers) was guided by Fisher et al’s (2003) recommendation that unlike younger adolescents, those over 16 can make informed decisions as well as adults [CitationRef removed]. The consent forms were read out to the adolescents in the presence of a legal guardian/parent who had accompanied them to the facility and informed assent was sought from minors, while legal guardians/parents gave written informed consent.
