Incidence study protocols

The sub-study on GAM incidence will be conducted in only 4 of the 6 clusters of the stepped wedge cluster randomised trial. Two of these clusters will be the ones in which the programme will be implemented in first and will serve as the intervention arm of the incidence study. The other two clusters will be the ones in which the programme will be implemented in last and will serve as the control arm of the incidence study.

This section sets forth the study protocols to be implemented for the incidence sub-study. This serves as a guide for the study investigators, study manager/s and all others involved in the study for implementing the study design.

The various protocols for the incidence sub-study are:
