ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 Progress – where are we now? We have more to do in the following: advocacy for additional support for unmet need in unfunded countries updating trachoma messaging with new data development of the Consortium model analysis of use of practices/resources in the field communications planning capacity strengthening membership development.
ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 Ongoing support for the Medical Officer Trachoma, the NTD/WASH teams and the GET2020 Alliance (as needed and through systematic engagement) Opportunities identified by Alliance members during the 2014 meeting in Ethiopia in April. Funding gap analysis and donor mapping post GTMP (Draft Rec2) Gaps in existing guidelines, operational practices, technical support (Draft Rec3) Feasibility/risk assessment of barriers to achieving GET2020 targets (Draft Rec18) Encourage ICTC members to support national program participation at the Alliance Partnership with WHO
ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 We are not!We are …. ICTC is not a norm-setting agency (WHO has that mandate) - we are a vibrant member of the WHO-led GET 2020 Alliance who share best practice and use the experience of our members to ensure effective and efficient program delivery ICTC is not a decision-making body for the allocation or management of the Zithromax donation program - these are the respective roles of the Trachoma Expert Committee and ICTC member the International Trachoma Initiative ICTC is not a group that makes recommendations on the timing of trachoma impact surveys - these recommendations are made by the WHO and Trachoma Expert Committee Communicating the role of ICTC
ICTC - Celebrating our ten year anniversary in 2014 We are not!We are …. ICTC is focused on the needs of those at risk of blinding trachoma, not individual members. The Coalition plays to the diverse strengths of its members to fit the member to the need of the country program. ICTC is not a registered NGO with a budget and a bank account – we are a membership organisation working together with and not in competition with our members ICTC is not an employer or a contractor – officers generally work on a voluntary basis or by negotiation with our employers. Sometimes ICTC members employ consultants to do work prioritised by the Coalition and contribute to the costs of that work Growing pains ….
