    <p>Patterns among MPI poor adults (A.), MPI non-poor adults (B.), MPI poor children (C.) and MPI non-poor children (D.). Arrows represent transitions between providers. Arrow sizes are proportional to the number of participants making a transition between each pair of care providers, and ordered by frequency from top to bottom for the transitions between home and initial source of help, and by frequency from left to right for transitions between sources of help consulted prior to the referral hospital. Transitions undertaken by fewer than 2% of the group are not illustrated.</p

Panels G and H represent the cumulative timecourse of all three stages for adults and children respectively.</p
