Control planning

These maps will identify which implementation units require mass treatment, based on the treatment recommendations by WHO and guided by the predictive risk maps. These maps will also show where further worm surveys would be useful.

Recommendations will be provided at the second administrative level – typically defined as the district – which is the level at which control decisions are usually made. The control planning maps will provide a valuable tool for the rational targeting of treatment and the efficient design of further surveys.

The underlying modelling work is currently on-going and maps will be available shortly.
