All interviews began with an oral consent process (originally composed in English and given in Nepali, the regional contact language), which was based on a script approved by SIUE’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) for informed consent in research involving human subjects. This consent process included respondent awareness that his/her information would be made available for public access, through audio-visual and through still (photograph) images.
