ITI is a program of The Task Force for Global Health.
The trachoma and NTD program in Benin is part of the larger National Program for the Prevention of Communicable Diseases (PNLMT), and was established in 2007. Trachoma prevalence surveys were first conducted in 2014 using the GTMP platform and a trachoma action plan was drafted in 2015. Benin began full SAFE implementation in 2016.
Currently, four districts have completed their first round of treatment. In 2017, all eight districts endemic for trachoma were approved for distribution and will have distributed Zithromax® in May.
