BACKGROUND: Vertical control and elimination programs focused on specific neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) can achieve notable success by reducing the prevalence and intensity of infection. However, many NTD-endemic countries have not been able to launch or scale-up programs because they lack the necessary baseline data for planning and advocacy. Each NTD program has its own mapping guidelines to collect missing data. Where geographic overlap among NTDs exists, an integrated mapping approach could result in significant resource savings...

BACKGROUND: The clinical signs of active trachoma are often present in the absence of ocular Chlamydia trachomatis infection in low prevalence and mass treated settings. Treatment decisions are currently based on the prevalence of clinical signs, and this may result in the unnecessary distribution of mass antibiotic treatment. We aimed to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of a prototype point-of-care (POC) test, developed for field diagnosis of ocular C. trachomatis, in low prevalence settings of The Gambia and Senegal...

Recent decades have seen an increase in the number of cases of waterborne illnesses involving humans and animals living in the Senegal River Basin. The "Senegal River Basin Development Authority" (French acronym, OMVS) decided to draft a "Water Development and Management Master Plan" (French acronym, SDAGE) for the Senegal drainage basin. The aim of ther plan is to avoid overuse of natural resources while allowing development of human activities in the area of the Senegal River. The SDAGE was designed to serve as a timetable and program for mobilizing resources and monitoring impact on the environment and local population until 2025...

The objective of this study was to use a modified Lot Quality Assurance Sampling methodology to classify communities according to prevalence of active trachoma and to estimate the prevalence of trachoma and trichiasis in Nioro department, Kaolack Region, Senegal. A survey was conducted using two-stage cluster sampling to select 50 children aged 2-5 years in each of 33 clusters. In total 1,648 children were examined for active trachoma. Information on trachoma risk factors was collected through interviews with the mother or the household head of the child...

A national survey was conducted to determine the prevalence of trachoma in Senegal between February and July 2000. The methodology consisted of a cross-sectional survey based on random sampling with two levels of stratification in five areas or area groups. A total of 12,328 children under 10 years of age and 8753 women over the age of 14 years were examined from 150 clusters (30 clusters per stratum). Excluding the Dakar stratum, the estimated prevalence of active trachoma (TF/TI) and severe trachoma (TI) in children under 10 years of age was 10...

BACKGROUND: Trachoma is a leading cause of blindness in West Africa. In Senegal previous studies have shown that the endemicity is high. AIMS: To verify the extent of the pathology and to study the epidemiologic characters of this infectious disease in a population of school age children in a rural zone, located in the Thiès region (Senegal). METHODS: A cross-sectional survey in six villages in the region of Thiès was performed in a population of school age children (5 to 15 years old)...

In Senegal as well as others developing countries trachoma is a real public health problem. Entropion trichiasis is its most common and its most blinding complication. The authors made a retrospective study on 137 records of patients who underwent 199 surgical cures on a two years period. Epidemiologically, the average age is 49 years with a significative higher percentage of woman. Clinically, 51.5% of the patients had already complications, mostly on the cornea. The Trabut technique was the most used and its results was good in 82...

The evaluation of the prevalence of ophthalmological diseases and vitamin A deficiency in Senegalese preschool-aged children enabled us to confirm the method of impression cytology with transfer (ICT) and to assess the impact of ophthalmological diseases on the cytological appearance of conjunctival cells. A simplification of the ICT method consisted of transferring cells present on a strip of paper to a glass slide by finger pressure. Harris-Schorr staining of the sample papers confirmed the results obtained by the transfer...
