Table 1: Description of research sites.

Pabo subcountyPabo camp had been one of the largest and most overcrowded camps during the war. Numerous emergency relief organizations had built up infrastructure in the area. As such, it was a relatively well-resourced and accessible site located on a main road with two health centres, schools from nursery to secondary, markets, and other resources. The majority of participants from this site were residents of the Pabo camp and/or were in early phases of resettlement planning their return or moving back and forth between camp and villages. Half of the caregiver participants became case studies and those who resettled were followed back to their villages of resettlement in the subcounty.
Amuru subcountySite was very remote, difficult to access, and underresourced. The team travelled by car, motorbike, and hiking on foot. All but one of the water points in the camp were broken, the nearest health centre was approximately 11 km away and it was only open during weekday daytime hours, the road was badly rutted with potholes filled with mud and water, and the primary school was a mud and grass-thatched structure built and supported by the community. Participants were either from the Omee II decongestion/transition camp (small camp established later in the war to move people closer to their land for subsistence and to decongest larger camps) or the surrounding villages. The majority of participants were either actively in the process of resettlement (moving back and forth to camp) or had recently resettled.
Anaka subcountyAccessibility and resources/services were variable; that is, villages closer to the main centres tended to have access to health care, education, and water points whereas those farther away from the centres were more like the Omee II with very limited or inaccessible resources. The third site consisted of 8 parishes (villages and camps) in the Anaka subcounty in order to capture people who had been resettled for varying durations and reach saturation on emerging themes.
