Description

Cutaneous leishmaniasis is one of the main tropical diseases in the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region. The disease continues to pose a real challenge because it is difficult to control and it requires the intervention of other stakeholders in addition to the health sector. WHO has prepared the Framework for Action on Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in the Eastern Mediterranean Region 2014-2018 with the aim of supporting the efforts that countries devote to decreasing the impact of the disease.

This framework sets five regional targets on surveillance, case management, prevention, capacity-building and research, aimed at reducing the disease burden. It addresses how to respond to the need for cutaneous leishmaniasis control and formulates an action plan to make operational the principles and major areas of intervention.

A set of indicators and forms offers a standardized tool to assist in reporting and data analysis, thus facilitating comparison between countries of the results obtained in different endemic areas and learning from each other. The framework was developed in consultation with Member States of the Region and experts in the field. It was reviewed by national program managers.
