a The number of eligible girls was determined by enumerating and creating a list of those eligible according to the delivery strategy criteria in each country before administration of the first vaccine dose.

b The term ”class” is used in Uganda instead of “grade”, but has the same meaning.

c The number of eligible girls was lower in the second year than in the first because of population movements, primarily migration out of the area.

d This figure is the census estimate of the number of girls aged 10 years rather than that obtained by direct enumeration.

e Only for girls who were not enrolled in or attending school.
