12 Articles on Trachoma Control and Elimination

The SAFE approach to elimination of blinding trachoma (surgery, antibiotics, facial hygiene, environmental sanitation) is moving the world towards the 2020 target for elimination of blinding trachoma.

Mapping the disease is essential. The Global Trachoma Mapping Project is detailed at http://www.sightsavers.org/gtmp/

Here, in ascending order by hits, are trachoma items dating back to 2010.   The starred articles include a recent update on MDA, an update of the W.H.O. position (“Elimination of blinding trachoma by 2020”), and an overview of clinical and preventive interventions.

Good reading/rereading.
