Rationale, effectiveness and feasibility of integration of MDA for Lymphatic Filariasis, Deworming and Pulse Polio programmes in India – A Case Study” conducted by PATH in India

For this project, PATH will collaborate with the Department of Health and Family Welfare, Department of Women and Child Development, Department of Education, and Department of Panchayati Raj and Rural Development to study the mass drug administration (MDA) for Lymphatic Filariasis (LF), deworming, and Pulse Polio. Full integration (simultaneous administration) will be pursued between the LF and deworming programs due to the similarities in human resources and planning/review processes. Partial integration with Pulse Polio will be pursued due to the overlap in age of target population, robust training/monitoring process, and improved ability to reach vulnerable populations.
