We conducted this cross-sectional study in both urban and rural primary healthcare centers (PHCs) in Bangladesh. We selected Upazila (subdistrict) health complexes as our setting and included both rural and urban PHCs. Although as per the guidelines of systematic review and meta-analysis, there is no fixed or standard sample size requirement for conducting psychometric analysis (Anthoine et al., 2014). Data for this study came from a nationwide survey of primary healthcare institutions in Bangladesh
