Course 7: Trachoma – Progress Towards Elimination

This course examined the global progress made in eliminating trachoma as a blinding disease in the 57 endemic countries since the inception of the Global Alliance to Eliminate Blinding Trachoma (GET 2020) was established in 1997. The panel provided updates on the current status of trachoma in the world and lay out the “road map” for what will be necessary to achieve the elimination goal, with only 8 years remaining before the target date of 2020.
