Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) affect more than one billion people worldwide, disproportionately impacting the most vulnerable and marginalised communities.
Ethiopia has one of the highest NTD burdens in Africa. Supporting the Ethiopian Government to tackle this, Malaria Consortium has been implementing a pilot research study to explore the feasibility, acceptability and cost effectiveness of integrating the prevention, diagnosis, management and reporting interventions of three common NTDs – lymphatic filariasis, schistosomiasis and trachoma – into Ethiopia’s primary healthcare system.
