This study estimates the proportion of children with trachomatous inflammation—follicular (TF) and adults with trachomatous trichiasis (TT) in internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in the Darfur States of Sudan and evaluates associated risk factors.
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 study assesses whether trachoma is a public health problem in 16 provinces in China
This study estimates the prevalence of trachoma and access to water and sanitation in seven suspected-trachoma-endemic districts of northern Congo, surveyed as a single evaluation unit.
This study estimates the prevalence of trachoma in suspected-endemic areas of Chad and thereby determines whether trachoma is a public health problem requiring intervention.
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.
