2 ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in ,237 districts have completed mapping Representing a population of 178 million people 1.8 million people examined in 21 countries Over 36.5 million data items have been processed We are actively working with 19 different organisations 94% districts mapped were completed using GTMP methodology Original target will be achieved in September 6 months before the project end date Progress DFID has been awarded GTMP an overall A++ rating “outputs substantially exceeded expectation”

5 Collaboration USAID through ENVSION propose to fund trachoma baseline mapping in: Chad, Cote d’Ivoire and Zimbabwe An additional contribution of approximately £0.6m or $1 m This is in addition to: FHI 360 mapping in; Cambodia and Laos (and impact surveys in Vietnam) RTI mapping in; Benin, DRC, Guinea, Mozambique, Nepal, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda We’d like to thank RTI, FHI360 and USAID for their ongoing support and collaboration

6 ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 Collaboration We are exploring opportunities with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to provide ophthalmic health workers in trachoma endemic countries with distance learning courses to build knowledge of trachoma and epidemiology The World Health Organisation are supporting work to co-ordinate trachoma and other disease mapping: Yaws mapping in Vanuatu (training to be held in October) Guinea worm mapping in Sudan and Gambella (Ethiopia) The World Health Organisation are working in collaboration with LSHTM and ITI to achieve Impact Assessment standardisation We’d like to thank all of our partners; Ministries of Health, ICTC, ITI, LSHTM, WHO and especially DFID for supporting and encouraging us to stretch our goals

7 ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 Working with ICTC members to build a legacy TT surgery: GTMP is committed to assisting Ministries of Health to develop strategies to operate on TT patients identified during GTMP surveys. (Currently; Laos, Cambodia, Zimbabwe, Eritrea, and Egypt have plans and/or donor commitments.) Scope of baseline mapping: GTMP will work with WHO HQ and WHO AFRO, to find and review ‘gaps’ where baseline mapping is required Protocol and application process for scientific access to data (after primary publication by countries): in progress. There is a recommendation to link funding to USAID’s funding and the NTD Support Center and to involve local researchers to build capacity. For example: GTMP will launch an RFA for a research group to overlay WASH and trachoma data. There is potential to start this work in Ethiopia

8 ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 Working with ICTC members to build a legacy Unit cost analysis: GTMP will review the cost drivers in different countries/regions to better understand relative costs of working in these areas Phones audit: we are conducting an android phone audit, to inform how these assets might be used by future programs

9 ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 Great progress to-date The end of mapping is in sight (but still a lot of hard work required over the next 6 months)

10 ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 The programme aims to eliminate blinding trachoma from Kenya and Malawi and make significant progress towards the elimination of trachoma in Uganda, Mozambique, and Katsina State (Nigeria) using the SAFE methodology over 5 years. 11 million people will receive treatment in their communities 160,000 surgeries will be performed.

11 ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 Great progress since April In all 5 countries: Proposals are approved Start up workshops held Implementation underway All contracts signed and first payment tranches sent Concept proposals for additional funding to support programmes in Tanzania submitted to the Trust and related donors

12 ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 Progress Training of trainers for refresher training to Trichiasis surgeons held in Kenya in July.
