    This is in reference to the following sentence on page 14, right column: "HCWs¿ perceptions of vaccines and of vaccine preventable diseases may be different in developing countries because they face different disease burdens, and this is the reason why these studies were not included [35,36]." I would like to point out that in the study you cited (No. 36: Schaetti C et al., PLoS ONE 2012;7(7):e41527) we did not study health care workers' perceptions in Zanzibar; we interviewed the general community instead.
