Is Preventive Chemotherapy for NTDs Really “Pro-Poor?”: Insights from the Demographic and Health Surveys

To use DHS data from 40 countries to examine the extent to which deworming of children 1-4 years is associated with: 1) a range of individual- and family-related socioeconomic indicators, including wealth quintile and maternal education; and 2) access to health systems that could provide opportunities for deworming, independent of family-level socioeconomic status.

Coverage Evaluation Survey and Supervisor's Coverage Tool Implementation in Kenya for Triple Drug Therapy

Coverage Evaluation Survey

Is coverage, or a combination of coverage and systematic non-compliance, more effective than a diagnostic tool at predicting when it is safe to stop triple drug therapy?

Supervisor's Coverage Tool

Is the use of the SCT during IDA feasible to implement at the sub-county scale and does it lead to increased coverage?

Operational research to develop an M&E strategy to guide triple drug stopping decisions for lymphatic filariasis in Egypt

What is the indicator(s) and accompanying monitoring and evaluation (M&E) strategy that enables country programs to determine when the risk of ongoing transmission of LF has been reduced so that IDA can be stopped with little risk of resurgence of transmission?
