Erratum: Randomized controlled trial on drowning prevention for parents with children aged below five years in Bangladesh: a study protocol

After publication of our article [1], it was brought to our attention that we had omitted to acknowledge that parts of the text were directly reproduced from the “Global report on drowning: preventing a leading killer” by the World Health Organization [2] cited as reference 14 in the article and from “Efficacy of a text messaging (SMS) based smoking cessation intervention for adolescents and young adults: Study protocol of a cluster randomised controlled trial” by Haug et al. [3]. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
