CNTD has worked with Nepal to plan their programme of MDA to eradicate Lymphatic Filariasis.
We have assisted Nepal in their assessment of MDA effectiveness through MDA coverage surveys and the monitoring of remaining prevalence using sentinel site surveys.
Nepal is establishing a Morbidity Management and Disability Prevention programme for LF. CNTD has worked with the MoH to undertake a morbidity burden assessment using the MeasureSMS MHealth tool, with 3809 workers trained in using the system. We have assisted in the provision of Hydrocelectomies through initiatives that have resulted in 5000 hydrocelectomies being performed. As part of the long term care of Lymphoedema patients, we have been worked to build capacity through assessing the potential for integration of LF patients into self-care groups already established for leprosy patients.
