  1. The difference between the change of 17% in the intervention group and 3% in the comparison group is 14% and part of this can be attributed to the intervention
  2. Notes on Table 1: The reduction in the number of expected weekly health facility reports before and after training is due to the difference in time period i.e. the number of weeks allocated for each category. There are 12 weeks of observation allocated after training and 15 weeks before training
