Overview

The consultation aimed to determine what core data are needed by which trachomatous trichiasis stakeholders, at what time points? The consultation then aimed to define how the trachoma community could unite to ensure that those data are collected and appropriately processed and presented, in ways that safeguard the respective interests of patients, surgeons, programmes, partners, funders and the Alliance for Global Elimination of Trachoma by 2020.

The scope of this meeting was deliberately restricted to the data needs for routine management of primary trachomatous trichiasis.
