Hi,

I have submitted a manuscript based on Honduras DHS data from 2011-2012. The editor asks that I provide an "ethical approval code". Does such a code exist for DHS data? I have generally written about ethical approval provided by the Macro Institutional Review Board, but I cannot find any country specific information about local review board approvals. The Honduras DHS report does not seem to mention this at all. Can anyone help with documentation/references related to ethical approval of the 2011-2012 round?

Thank you very much in advance!

Helga Urke

Hi again,

The manuscript is accepted, but can only be published once the ethical approval code is presented. Can you provide any information on this? I see that you have previously sent this directly on email to other persons who ask for the same. I would really appreciate receiving this as soon as possible so that the publishing process is not delayed.

Thanks,
Helga
