The International Coalition for Trachoma Control's strategic plan spans the critical period running up to 2020, the year by which we are striving to see the elimination of trachoma as a public health problem.
At the core of this strategy lie our 2015-2020 strategic objectives, through which we aim to:
1. Increase political will for, and commitment to, trachoma elimination among donors and decision makers.
2. Increase investment, as required, in trachoma elimination programs and SAFE interventions.
3. Strengthen capacity and human resources needed to achieve trachoma elimination by 2020.
4. Coordinate the provision of technical assistance and the sharing of knowledge to support high quality outcomes in trachoma elimination programs.
5. Ensure an effective coalition model and way of working that responds appropriately to changing contexts.
The introduction sets out the context in which we found ourselves in 2015. The rest of the document is arranged into five sections. About trachoma is an overview of the trachoma burden and its impacts. About ICTC describes the nature of the coalition; our history, vision, mission and principles. Section three looks at how ICTC supports trachoma elimination and aims to clarify the unique contribution of ICTC to the elimination of trachoma as a public health problem by 2020. Section four outlines our five strategic objectives and key areas of activity against each one. The final section details our ways of working that rely on a high level of member engagement and an agile approach to collaboration.
