  1. Notes to Table 3. † For Tanzania we use different sources for different programmes: Yukich et al. [14] for SMARTNET, Mulligan et al. [47] for TNVS, and Hanson et al. [39] for KINET.
  2. †† We use Yukich et al. [14] rather than Stevens et al. [50] because the former include two additional years of data.
