CNTD has worked with Zambia to undertake a programme of MDA to eradicate Lymphatic Filariasis.
We were involved in the initial mapping of LF prevalence in Zambia. After this, we supported the training of 24693 community drug distributors and the MDAs themselves; treating 26, 560,214 people over 3 rounds. We have assisted Zambia in their assessment of MDA effectiveness through MDA coverage surveys, surveys of CDDs and the monitoring of remaining prevalence using sentinel site surveys.
Zambia has begun work on a Morbidity Management and Disability Prevention programme for LF. CNTD has worked with the MoH to undertake a morbidity burden assessment integrated with the MDA.
