“Evaluating a transition to government ownership of schistosomiasis and soil-transmitted helminth control programs in four districts in Nigeria” conducted by The Carter Center  in Nigeria

This NTD-focused project will research how the treatment coverage of district SCH/STH programs in Nigeria changes when the districts are transitioned from partial support by an external partner to full support by the various levels of government involved in school-based mebendazole and praziquantel distribution. In particular, the team will look at how the responsibilities and the mechanics of MDA among staff from throughout the local health system will be affected.
