          Eliminating Blinding Trachoma1

ORDA together with funding partners, like CBM Germany are working in various woredas of the region on blindness prevention and control programs focusing mainly on cataract surgery and trachoma control through the SAFE Strategy (surgery, antibiotics, facial cleanliness and environmental improvement).

The community sensitization by ATCP workers has improved the construction and utilization of latrines which significantly reduced of the prevalence of active trachoma.

The availability and use of water has increased hand and face washing habits in the area. Trachoma still remains the major cause of infectious blindness worldwide.
