Overview of trachoma: Eliminate trachoma, progress and challenges
Overview of trachoma: Epidemiology and global mapping of trachoma
This article looks at eight milestones reached in the global program to eliminate trachoma as a public health problem.
January 30, 2020 is the first-ever World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day (World NTD Day), a day when we celebrate the achievements made towards control of the world’s NTDs, yet recognize the daunting challenges we face in the control and elimination of these conditions.
This study, part of broader implementation research in Ethiopia, applied a gender lens to health seeking for five NTDs: lymphatic filariasis, podoconiosis, schistosomiasis, soil-transmitted helminth infection and trachoma.
This study aims to identify and prioritize municipalities in 22 countries of Latin America for trachoma surveillance activities, to measure the absence or prevalence of trachoma, and to support validation and trachoma elimination efforts in the Region of the Americas.
This article presents these aggregate TIS results, providing regional-, zonal-, and district-level summaries of progress toward trachoma elimination targets.
