CNTD has worked extensively with Liberia to plan and undertake a programme of MDA to eradicate Lymphatic Filariasis. 

We supported the training of 15253 community drug distributors and the MDAs themselves; treating 6434020 people over 4 rounds.  We have assisted Liberia in their assessment of MDA effectiveness through MDA coverage surveys, surveys of CDDs and the monitoring of remaining prevalence using sentinel site surveys.

CNTD has worked with the MoH to undertake a morbidity burden assessment using the MeasureSMS MHealth tool, with 155 workers trained in using the system.  As part of the long term care of Lymphoedema patients, we have worked to build capacity through the training of 404 health workers in lymphoedema management, 155 health workers in the referral of patients to appropriate services and by confirming the effectiveness of this training through health worker assessment.
