Excerpt
of the Trachoma Alliance. In July 1996, WHO hosted a Global Scientific Meeting on Future Approaches to Trachoma Control which had proposed the integrated SAFE strategy for trachoma control (S for Surgery, A for Antibiotic treatment, F for Facial cleanliness, E for Environmental improvement). A Planning Meeting of Interested Parties held in November 1996 had taken further the formation of the Trachoma Alliance. The challenge now before the new group is to obtain the necessary data from countries with endemic trachoma, to coordinate activities and to mobilize resources to assist national governments with trachoma control programmes as part of primary health care. Mr R. Porter, Executive Director of Sight Savers International, and Dr L. Pizzarello, Medical Director of Helen Keller International, served as Chairman and Vice-Chairman respectively with Dr A. Foster, Medical Director of Christoffel-Blindenmission e.V., as Rapporteur. The draft agenda (Annex 1) was adopted without modification; the list of participants is included in Annex 2.
