MSF staff participated in data collection (through their work in routine projects in collaboration with the Ministry of Health) and preparation of the manuscript (all authors were employed by MSF at the time the study was conducted). Epicentre verified the data collection and analysis for this study. Epicentre is a non-profit organisation created by MSF to conduct operational research/evaluations in MSF-supported projects to improve the quality of care provided and evaluate activities/strategies implemented in the projects. More information about this non-profit organisation can be found in the website: http://www.epicentre.msf.org/en/in-brief. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all the PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials and the authors declared that no competing interests exist.
