( ) ( ) ( ) 0 0 0 0 e 1 1+e t t t t α α χ χ χ − − = + − 2 where χ0 is the initial prevalence of MC, t0 is the time at which the logistic term reaches 0.5, and α determines the rate at which the coverage of MC increases. For the ten year expansion we set t0 = 2010 and α = 0.6/year while for the five year expansion we set t0 = 2007.5 and α = 1.2/year giving the coverage as a function of time, illustrated for South Africa in Figure S1.
