Abstract Background: - Trachoma is the leading cause of infectious blindness worldwide. Problem with trachoma can be prevented through Sanitation and Hygiene improvement. This study assesses the relation between triggering villages through CLTSH and significant result on blinding trachoma. Objective: Assessment of Trachoma prevalence and associated factors among in CLTSH triggered village and non-triggered village of Girar Jarso Woreda, North Shoa, Oromia Region, Ethiopia, 2014. Methods: A c… 
Prevalence of Active Trachoma and Associated Factors in Areka Town, South Ethiopia, 2018
The prevalence of active trachoma in the children aged 1–9 years in the study area was found to be high, and it is much higher than the WHO elimination threshold.
Determinants of Active Trachoma among Children aged 1-9 Years in Ol Donyo Nyokie Location, Kajiado County, Kenya
The overall prevalence of active trachoma was found to be 15.7%.
Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices about Trachoma in Rural Communities of Tigray Region, Northern Ethiopia: Implications for Prevention and Control
Assessment of knowledge, attitudes, and practices on trachoma and its associated factors among rural communities in two districts of Tigay Region, Northern Ethiopia implies that areas with high burden oftrachoma need to improve communities' knowledge, attitude, and Practices towards trachomas prevention and control in order to eliminate trachum as a public health problem.
Open defecation-free slippage and its associated factors in Ethiopia: a systematic review
It was estimated that 1 out of 6 Ethiopian households engaged in open defecation after they have certified opendefecation-free status, implying the low possibility of achieving sustainable development goals of 2030, which aims to ensure sanitation for all.


Active trachoma in children aged three to nine years in rural communities in Ethiopia: prevalence, indicators and risk factors.
The need for broad target interventions and a flexible approach to the prevention of trachoma in high prevalence endemic rural populations in Ethiopia is demonstrated.
Prevalence of risk factors for trachoma in a rural locality of north-western Ethiopia.
The development of a system aimed at educating and convincing the people to maintain high personal and environmental hygiene and the strengthening of the nearby health centres to incorporate activities like correction of lid deformities to prevent further loss of eye vision due to corneal damage are recommended.
Prevalence of trachoma and its determinants in Dalocha District, Central Ethiopia
According to the WHO, the findings of TI and TF in more than 5% and 20%, respectively, of children aged 10 years or less and TT in more the 1% of older individuals indicate that trachoma is a major public health problem in Dalocha community.
Access to Water Source, Latrine Facilities and Other Risk Factors of Active Trachoma in Ankober, Ethiopia
Active trachoma among children 1–9 years of age in Ankober is highly prevalent and significantly associated with a number of risk factors including access to water and latrine facilities.
Risk factors for active trachoma in children and trichiasis in adults: a household survey in Amhara Regional State, Ethiopia.
To investigate risk factors for active trachoma and trichiasis in Amhara Regional State, Ethiopia, a survey was undertaken and eligible participants (children aged 1-9 years and adults aged 15 years and above) examined for trichoma and risk factors were assessed.
Prevalence of Trachoma in Ethiopia
Active Trachoma and trachomatous trichiasis are concentrated in the regions of the country with high population density, namely the Amhara, Oromia, and SNNP regional states.
Altitude-a risk factor for active trachoma in southern Ethiopia.
Low altitude was revealed as a consistent and highly significant risk factor for trachoma infection in children 1-10 years of age in Kembata zone, southern Ethiopia and SAFE strategy should be implemented.
Active trachoma two years after three rounds of azithromycin mass treatment in Cheha district Gurage zone, Southern Ethiopia
The prevalence of active trachoma in the study community was 22.8% that was lower than that of Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People's Regional prevalence in 2006, and the other components of the SAFE strategy such as fly control program, improving the water sources, measures to improve face washing and construction of utilizable latrines have to be integrated with mass azithromycin treatment.
Active trachoma in children in central Ethiopia: association with altitude.
It is possible that fly density, higher in villages at low altitudes, contributed to the differences seen, and confirmation of the association between active disease and altitude may assist with mapping of trachoma in Ethiopia and elsewhere.
Efficacy of latrine promotion on emergence of infection with ocular Chlamydia trachomatis after mass antibiotic treatment: a cluster-randomized trial.
A cluster-randomized trial assessing the effect of intensive latrine promotion on emergence of infection with ocular Chlamydia trachomatis after mass treatment with antibiotics found no difference in the prevalence of ocular chlamydial infection in children due to latrine construction.
