Ethiopia bears one of the highest neglected tropical disease (NTD) burdens in sub-Saharan Africa. Previous NTD control has focused on large-scale treatment of affected populations, mainly through mass drug administration. However, the World Health Organization's 2021–2030 roadmap calls for greater integration of NTDs into national health systems.
Additionally, Ethiopia’s 2021–2025 NTD Master Plan lists NTD services as a strategic objective. This study aimed to develop and pilot an intervention to strengthen and integrate NTD detection, management, recording and reporting into primary healthcare in Ethiopia.
This poster was presented at the 70th annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
