This second newsletter focuses on Ethiopia, a country that is immensely committed to achieving morbidity control and elimination of schistosomiasis.
We dedicated this newsletter to Ethiopia to elaborate on an elimination project the GSA is currently working on with members and partners. Have a read to find out more about our approach and the country in general.
For schistosomiasis the paradigm has shifted from morbidity control to elimination as a public health problem. The first conference of the Global Schistosomiasis Alliance (GSA) Research Working Group, held in mid-June 2016 in Shanghai, reviewed current progress in schistosomiasis control and elimination, identified pressing operational research gaps that need to be addressed and discussed new tools and strategies required to make elimination a reality.
