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 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.
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.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of trachoma in the Marajó Archipelago in 2008 and 2016 and the impact of the introduction of educational and preventive measures on the disease during an eight-year interval.
The aim of this analysis was to estimate the unit cost and to identify the key cost drivers of trachoma prevalence surveys conducted as part of GTMP.
