Additional information

Description of data capture Cross-sectional meningococcal carriage surveys were conducted in seven countries across the meningitis belt between July 1st 2010 and December 31st 2010. Subjects were selected randomly from within populations which were part of a routine demographic survey system (DHSS) or in which a census had recently been performed. The study population was recruited from urban and rural populations and stratified into four age groups: < 5 years, 5-14 years, 15-29 years and 30 years or older. A short questionnaire collecting demographic details and information on potential risk factors was completed for each participant and each household recruited. Blood samples were collected from the first 100 subjects surveyed within each of the four age bands in both urban and rural study sites, giving an overall target of 800 samples per country. This target was achieved, except in Senegal where there was some resistance to the collection of blood samples. A 5 mL sample was collected, serum separated within six hours of collection and then stored at -20°C until assayed.
