Hedtke, Shannon; Kuesel, Annette; Crawford, Katie; Graves, Patricia; Boussinesq, Michel; Lau, Colleen; Boakye, Daniel; Grant, Warwick N.


Onchocerciasis and lymphatic filariasis are targeted for elimination, primarily using mass drug administration at the country and community levels. Elimination of transmission is the onchocerciasis target and global elimination as a public health problem is the end point for lymphatic filariasis. Where program duration, treatment coverage, and compliance are sufficiently high, elimination is achievable for both parasites within defined geographic areas. However, transmission has re-emerged...[Show more]
