Improving disease control and elimination decision making with geospatial algorithms

Can geospatial algorithms be used by disease programs to help identify hotspots at community and Implementation Unit level?

Developing a surveillance framework for the post-elimination phase of the lymphatic filariasis programme in Bangladesh

  • Can the micro-stratification of lymphatic filariasis (LF) transmission assessment surveys positive case and clinical case data be used to identify, map and monitor transmission hotspots as part of an enhanced endgame surveillance strategy?
  • Can targeted molecular xenomonitoring detect ongoing transmission [to the same extent as human surveillance] in defined LF transmission hotspots?

Ov16 and Wb123 ELISA for onchocerciasis elimination mapping (OEM) Ethiopia

Would the same programmatic decisions for Oncho Elimination Mapping be made based off of the Ov16 RDT results as compared to the Ov16 SD ELISA results in 7 woredas included in OEM in Ethiopia?

Countries: Ethiopia

Operational research to compare the confirmatory mapping tool and xenomonitoring indicator (infectivity rate of L3 of Wuchereria bancrofti) in Monrovia to assess the necessity to implement MDA

What is the most appropriate method to evaluate the presence of W. bancrofti transmission in urban conurbations to establish if MDA is necessary for LF elimination?

Understanding areas of increased trachoma risk (hotspots) through the implementation of a post validation trachoma surveillance strategy

To determine if there is evidence of on-going or recent transmission in the “hotspot” communities of increased risk two years after they were identified during the pre-validation surveys (clinical, antibody and infection data).

Countries: Ghana
