Lymphatic Filariasis Elimination in the Americas: Regional Program Managers' Meeting (Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, 4-6 September, 2002)
Filariasis elimination began in China in 1950s as an agricultural/economic issue. The success of its program relied on a sustained government commitment, and collective efforts allowed China to eliminate lymphatic filariasis as a public-health problem. The Americas Region could very well be the first to reach the elimination goal, with recent breakthroughs clearly indicating this as feasible. This page offers a summary of the meeting and access to the full-text conference report in bookmarked PDF.   (6/Sep/2002)
