  1. 1MoH policy in Uganda is to conduct campaign LLIN distribution by sub-county across the country. Initially campaigns were designed to include as many districts as possible and therefore only a proportion of sub-counties in each districts were covered. As more LLINs became earmarked for campaign distribution the policy shifted to "filling-in" sub-counties to ensure that as many districts as possible have benefitted from campaigns in all their sub-counties.
  2. 2 At the time of writing this distribution mechanism is on-going in Adjumani district. For the purposes of the study only the first year of activities was considered; the number of LLINs delivered was the number delivered over the first year.
