MDA & morbidity | Lymphatic filariasis & Onchocerciasis & Schistosomiasis & Soil-transmitted helminthiasis & Trachoma

The Task Force for Global Health is thrilled to announce the winning teams of the Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) Hackathon, “Spread Truth, Not Disease.” Twelve teams competed virtually on April 17 and 18 to create a solution for challenges surrounding rumors/misinformation relating to mass drug administration (MDA) or treatment-seeking behavior among those affected with NTDs.

Morbidity | Lymphatic filariasis

This tool provides multi-country experiences in implementing a direct inspection protocol, a situation analysis, and collecting hydrocele and lymphedema patient estimates.

Guidelines

Diagnostics | Lymphatic filariasis

Effective monitoring and evaluation is not only necessary during the mass drug administration (MDA) period but important throughout the lifespan of lymphatic filariasis (LF) programs, including after MDA has stopped. Current WHO recommendations for surveillance advise programs to implement activities to detect new foci of transmission through the assessment of microfilaremia, antigenemia or antibodies.
