Increasing numbers of countries are reaching the Ultimate Intervention Goal of clinical trachoma <5% in children ages 1-9 years. Countries must then demonstrate through surveillance that this goal has been sustained. However, the best set of tools for surveillance monitoring is unclear. This seminar will present data on clinical trachoma, tests of infection with C. trachomatis, and a test for antibodies to C. trachomatis as tools for surveillance of trachoma.
Admission: Free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
