Trachoma is the most common infectious cause of blindness. But its epidemiology continues to rapidly evolve, with an estimated 91% reduction in the global number of people requiring the A, F and E interventions of the WHO-recommended SAFE strategy between August 2003 and June 2021. Implementation of SAFE, general improvement in living conditions and methodological changes in the way that surveys are conducted have likely all contributed to that prevalence decline. Ongoing addition to this literature is important to help inform programme managers, policy makers and partners by directing focus towards areas that still need support and by chronicling success elsewhere. To this end, Ophthalmic Epidemiology plans a further special issue on trachoma.
We invite authors to submit articles for consideration in this special issue, planned to go to print in mid 2023. All submitted articles will be subject to the peer-review process as usual, and only articles that pass peer-review will be accepted for publication.
