Sanitation and water supply coverage thresholds associated with active trachoma: Modeling cross-sectional data from 13 countries

This study characterizes associations between active trachoma, access to improved sanitation facilities, and access to improved water sources for the purpose of face washing, with the aim of estimating community-level or herd protection thresholds.

Tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour le N&CE - un guide pratique de partenariat et de planification

La communauté du trachome ne peut pas parvenir à mettre en place à elle seule toute l’intensi cation des composantes N&CE nécessaires. Il faut démarrer de nouveaux partenariats avec d’autres organisations travaillant déjà dans les secteurs de l’eau et de l’assainissement, la promotion de l’éducation et de la santé. Cet outil aidera les gérants et les plani cateurs des programmes du trachome à trouver de potentiels partenaires et les guidera au cours du processus de plani cation N&CE. Il contient des outils pratiques de plani cation qui sont élaborés pour toutes les étapes clés.

Progress for Tanzania - the fight to end trachoma gathers speed

Tanzania, a vast territory in Africa covering around 365 thousand square miles, is home to more than 52 million people.

The majority of the population is rural, making access to health programmes and services difficult, and only 15 percent of people have access to a toilet. 

The country is dealing with 9 of the 18 neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) including trachoma - and they continue to be a heavy burden on millions. 

One WASH - the implementation of Ethiopia's national programme

In 2013, Ethiopia launched its ambitious One WASH national programme. It brings together ministries and development partners to provide universal access to water and sanitation by 2020.

Although this support may not be enough to address each and every community, it presents opportunities for even greater collaboration between sectors to realise shared goals of improved health and prosperity for Ethiopia’s poorest.
