Relationships among clinical signs (Follicular Trachoma) and infection and antibody

The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationships among clinical signs (follicular trachoma) and the prevalence of infection and antibody and to determine whether it may be appropriate to consider one or more alternative indicators for deciding whether trachoma programs can stop MDA.

Diseases: Trachoma
