Did you seek advice or treatment for the illness outside the home?
'Seeking care outside the home' means going outside the family or household for advice or treatment. Seeking care could include anything from asking a neighbour for advice, to holding a religious ceremony on the child's behalf, to going to a hospital. If a physician or other provider visits the household to give care, this counts as seeking care outside the home. The child may or may not have accompanied the respondent when he/she sought care. For example, going to buy medicine without the child counts as seeking care. Circle the code corresponding to the response given. If the answer is 'Yes', continue to the next question. Otherwise, skip to CA10.
