ITI is a program of The Task Force for Global Health.
In Benin the trachoma control program is housed within the NTD program. The NTD program in Benin is part of the larger National Program for the Prevention of Communicable Diseases (PNLMT), and was established in 2007. Trachoma was included in its original mandate. Trachoma prevalence surveys were first conducted in 2014 using GTMP and a TAP was drafted in 2015.
Benin began full safe implementation in 2016.
CURRENT IMPLEMENTATION STATUS
Currently, four districts have completed their first round of treatment. In 2017, all eight districts endemic for trachoma have been approved for distribution and will distribute Zithromax® in May.
