Sudan has made progress in reducing the prevalence of trachoma within the country; however, the presence of over one million refugees from a neighboring trachoma hyper-endemic country could impact this progress. These surveys were the first step in addressing this important issue.
This article assesses the impact of the Global Trachoma Mapping Project
The study aims to (a) identify future trachoma mapping needs in the Pacific and (b) to examine whether any temporal trends in trachoma prevalence could be ascertained from the historical literature on trachoma in the Pacific Islands.
This document presents (i) the principles important to the design of trachoma prevalence surveys conducted after interventions intended to eliminate the disease as a public health problem, and (ii) WHO recommendations for their implementation.
This study used methodologies and systems for trachoma surveys considered to represent international best practice in order to generate reliable estimates of the prevalence of trachoma.
This journal assess the Global Trachoma Mapping Project and concludes that it is possible to quality control and quality assure prevalence surveys in such a way as to maximize comparability of prevalence estimates between countries and permit high-speed, high-fidelity data processing and storage, while protecting the interests of health ministries.
The trachoma community undertook a systematic, three-pronged strategy to map trachoma district by district, develop national-level trachoma elimination plans, and create a framework for governments, donors and partners to convene and coordinate in support of trachoma elimination.
To facilitate planning for the elimination of trachoma as a public health problem, national trachoma surveys were conducted between 2011 and 2016 to determine the prevalence of trachomatous inflammation—follicular (TF) and trachomatous trichiasis (TT) in all 31 endemic HDs.
This study estimates the prevalences of trachomatous inflammation—follicular (TF) and trichiasis in previous unmapped districts of Nepal
The objective of this study was to assess the prevalence of active trachoma among children between 1-9 years old in Woliso town, central Ethiopia.
