Adaptation of the survey forms for Uganda, training of data collectors, field-testing and district and facility sampling were carried out at the training workshop held 6-9 August 2002. Annexes 3 and 4 contain a summary of adaptations, the districts and facilities sampled and the adapted survey forms.
The country was divided into 4 regions. The capital city and one randomly selected district from each region were identified. Districts where security risks existed were excluded from the sampling due to safety concerns.
Within each district, the following facilities and households were selected:
• 4 public health facilities plus the district hospital (in this survey public health facility refers to either government or private-not-for-profit/NGO health facility)
• 5 private pharmacies/drug outlets close to the selected public health facility
• 1 central/district medicines warehouse/storage facility
• 15 households within 5km of each selected public health facility.
