Excerpt
In the countries A total of 26 million people in 22 countries were administered a 2-drug, once-yearly treatment in the second year of mass drug administration (MDA) in 2001, almost a ten-fold increase from the year 2000. Eleven countries, whose national plans and requests for donated drugs were reviewed and approved, will implement their national programmes in 2002. A total of 44 million albendazole tablets were shipped by GlaxoSmithKline to 26 countries for either the first or a subsequent round of mass drug administration. A total of 22 million ivermectin tablets (Mectizan®) were shipped by Merck & Co., Inc. to 8 countries covered by the African and Eastern Mediterranean Programme Review Groups; 15.5 million were for MDA in areas with only lymphatic filariasis (LF) while 6.5 million were for areas where lymphatic filariasis and onchocerciasis are co-endemic. Surveys continued in all the regions to map implementation units with LF transmission.
