Tropical Data Seeking to Eliminate Trachoma

Tropical Data is a data-collection initiative that helps countries carry out surveys as they work towards eliminating trachoma.

It uses the same approach and technology as the Global Trachoma Mapping Project. More than 1,500 surveys in 41 countries have already taken place, and more than 5 million people across four continents have been examined.

Working in some of the most remote and difficult environments, the service helps countries to collect high-quality, standardised data, and there are plans to extend the service to support other neglected tropical diseases.
