a The number of eligible girls was determined by counting and creating a list of those eligible at the facilities participating in the human papillomavirus vaccination (HPV) demonstration projects before administration of the first vaccine dose.

b The current study investigated the feasibility and cost of HPV vaccination strategies in a selection of facilities participating in the demonstration projects.

c The decrease from the first time period occurred because of population movements, primarily emigration.

d The figure was derived from a census estimate of girls aged 10 years rather than by a head count.
