Is there anyone with the knowledge on how Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) control programs can be integrated in WASH programs specially in terms of M&E framework to measure progress? If anyone knows where this has been done I would like to learn. I am interested learning where integration of these components has been done.

Dear Danny,

It might also be of relevance for you to look at the very successful Fit for School Program in the Philippines: here they combine reduction of intestinal worms (= neglected tropical disease) with oral health (= a huge problem for school children in the Philippines) with handwashing.

Christian wrote about it briefly here on the forum:
www.forum.susana.org/forum/categories/27...ools-approaches#1277

And this is the website:
www.fitforschool.ph

Are intestinal worms a priority for your work in Uganda?

Kind regards,
Elisabeth

Dr Elizabeth,

Thank you for sharing actually oral health is one of the areas no one is talking about here. Indeed Soil Transmitted Helminth (STH)especially tapeworms, hookworms, roundworms and askaris are the major burden. Also trachoma, schistosomiasis and filariasis are of great concern. Much of what we do as regards WASH is promoting hand washing, education and construction of water points for schools.

Fit for School programs are interesting, let me study their interventions further to see what I can pick from them.

Once again, I thank you for this wonderful resource.

Danny
