2.2.1 Interviews with key informants

Initial interviews with a selective group of key informants in order to gain insight into local conditions and injection practices were conducted both at the national and regional levels. At the national level interviews were held with representatives of the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Local Government, UEDMP, the AIDS Control Programme and the Uganda Red Cross. Local key informants were members of the Local Resistance Council, the District Medical Officer and hospital/provider facility administrators. The interviews at the national level added to the understanding of the system of distribution and/or source of injectables, needles and syringes. At the local level, interviews in Ankole raised some challenges to the research design, as informants questioned the limited scope of the study; - why did the study restrict itself to injection use rather than focusing on the wide range of drugs that have been misused over time? Other informants queried the generalization of the results of the study and laid specific emphasis on the sampling frame which excluded families who did not have children under the age of five. Respondents thus recognized the importance of the problems being investigated but saw them as part of more widespread problems.

In Busoga, the study formed part of a larger year long ethnographic study of the use of injections. As a result there is more qualitative contextual data from that area.
