Priorities for progress in Djibouti

  • Djibouti should take steps to confirm the epidemiological situation of intestinal worms and bilharzia, in order to determine the extent to which interventions for preventive chemotherapy are required.
  • Should Djibouti wish to submit a dossier to be validated as having eliminated trachoma as a public health problem, it should begin compiling data using the WHO Dossier preparation guidelines.
  • Support the Expanded Special Project for Elimination of Neglected Tropical Diseases (ESPEN) established by WHO AFRO region for the elimination of these five diseases.
