Description
Malaria and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) such as lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, trachoma and schistosomiasis affect almost 2 billion people every year. Coordinated targeting of these diseases will aid future control and elimination campaigns, but this will require integrated surveillance strategies. Malaria surveillance is routinely implemented through cross-sectional surveys where blood samples are tested for parasites. A major barrier to routine NTD surveillance is the range of samples required for parasite diagnosis: stool, urine, blood, eye swabs and skin snips. Instead of direct detection of parasites, there is an opportunity to implement serol...
