These items are designed for strategic distribution to patients throughout the study as a small gesture of appreciation.

give-away as part of marketing strategy, i.e. create awareness and liking


Explanation:
Now, as typho is cleared, I answer the question:

Items are given away to patients so that either one or all of these are expected in the future:

a. Their addiction to the items (I guess they are some kind of drugs)
b. Their advocacy of the items (promoting them to other patients).
