Accelerating elimination of onchocerciasis in Cameroon

Working men taking a break

GLIDE is working closely with in-country and international partners to support progress towards accelerating the elimination of onchocerciasis (river blindness) in Cameroon.

One element of this work is the development of an investment case for the deployment of alternative treatment strategies where there is co-endemicity of onchocerciasis and loiasis, also known as African worm eye. The objective is to quantify the cost and benefits of disease elimination in Cameroon which in turn will help raise awareness, mobilise donors, and drive partners toward stronger engagement to achieve elimination in Cameroon.
