2013 progress report on the elimination of Trachoma by the WHO Alliance for the Global Elimination of Blinding Trachoma by the year 2020 (GET2020).
The number of people living in trachoma-endemic districts was estimated to have reduced from 314 million in 2011 to 229 million in 2013, according to the World Health Organization. The 2014 estimate for the global population at risk is 232 million, but is based on significantly more data than previous estimates. More than 80% of the burden of active trachoma is concentrated in 14 countries, where immediate action is needed.
The Guide outlines strategies and approaches proposed by WHO that provide practical, step-by-step support to Member States in the planning and implementation of integrated people-centred eye care (IPEC).
