The World Health Organization (WHO) is developing a toolkit to help programs implement MMDP services. The toolkit incorporates relevant resources developed by WHO and partner institutions, and its objectives are as follows:
provide tools and templates for implementation of key activities to strengthen delivery by the health system of the recommended minimum package of care for LF patients
make information and tools accessible to national LF programs and health professionals around the world
identify and resolve gaps in resources
Components focus on the following areas:
Planning, including patient estimation
Capacity Building to Deliver MMDP Services
Documentation of MMDP services
This tool (click map below for interactive map) allows the user to selectively view multiple variables at once, identifying co-endemicity and intervention gaps, and thereby provides a stepping stone for integrated programming in country.
The TAS-STH Survey Sample Builder tool was designed to help capture the impact of lymphatic filariasis programs on soil-transmitted helminthiasis and provide guidance on whether ongoing mass drug administration is needed to control the transmission of intestinal worms.
