The role of the NGDO Coordination Group for the Elimination of Onchocerciasis
This article covers the role of the NGDO Coordination Group for the Control of Onchocerciasis. The Group was launched in 1992, and with the paradigm shift from control of disease to elimination of onchocerciasis transmission, the Group shifted its orientation to that new paradigm in 2013. It also changed its name, replacing ‘control’ with ‘elimination.’ In doing so, the Group has repositioned itself to build on the successes of the past to finish the job it began over 25 years ago.
