The Choice Disability Trial in Botswana
Implementation of the Choice Disability trial in Botswana reflects the overall implementation of the trial across all three countries. Stratified random allocation of interventions to the 25 trial sites (communities) in Botswana meant that:
- 14 received the Beyond Victims and Villains (BVV) intervention (alone or in combination)
- 12 received the Focused Workshop (FW) intervention (alone or in combination)
- 13 received the Concerting intervention (alone or in combination)
- 4 received no trial intervention
One of the 25 sites in Botswana is the pilot site for the trial and deliberately received all three of the trial interventions. We began each intervention in this site, in order to identify and iron-out implementation issues before proceeding to implementation in all the other sites allocated to receive that intervention in all three countries.
The three countries in the trial have undertaken the interventions somewhat differently, reflecting their particular national characteristics. We describe here how the field teams have undertaken the interventions in Botswana.
