Erratum

Evangelia Papavasiliou worked on this protocol and the first few months of the project, but moved before the submission of the paper and was erroneously omitted in the original version of the paper [1]. The authors would like to acknowledge her work on the protocol and as a contributing author, and her details are therefore included in this erratum.

With this in mind, the authors would also like to update the sections mentioned below:

New ‘Competing Interests’ statement:

The individuals (principal investigators and research associates) and the institutions involved in this trial declare no conflict of interests.

New ‘Author Contributions’ statement:

The study was conceived by CW, NP, SP, GPA and NO. SD, EP and MH are responsible for operationalising the protocol. CW is chief investigator for the study.

New ‘Acknowledgement’ Section:

We acknowledge the contributions of the people who take part in this research, often at a time of great challenge in their lives, thank you. This study would not be possible without the support of the participating sites, who are responsible for identifying participants, taking consent, and managing study participants and site specific documentation.
