Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Malaria in Somalia

Federal Government of Somalia, Puntland & Somaliland, Zonal NMCPs/MoH, (2016)

The main objective of the malaria prevention and control programme in Somalia is to prevent mortality and reduce morbidity due to malaria. The groups most vulnerable to the disease, children aged under 5 years and pregnant women, are especially targeted. Effective case management - early diagnosis and treatment - is a critical component of malaria prevention and control. To achieve the main objective of reducing malaria morbidity and prevention of malaria mortality, the availability of safe, effective, affordable and accessible anti-malarial drugs is a prerequisite.

Regional action plan for viral hepatitis in South-East Asia: 2016-2021

World Health Organization (WHO), Regional Office for South-East-Asia, (2016)

Recognizing neglected tropical diseases through changes on the skin: a training guide for front-line health workers

World Health Organization (WHO), (2018)

The skin of a patient is the first and most visible structure of the body that any health-care worker encounters during the course of an examination. To the patient, it is also highly visible, and any disease that affects it is noticeable and will have an impact on personal and social well-being. The skin is therefore an important entry point for both diagnosis and management. Many diseases of humans are associated with changes to the skin, ranging from symptoms such as itching to changes in colour, feel and appearance. This training guide explains how to identify the signs and symptoms of neglected tropical diseases of the skin through their visible characteristics. It also contains information on how to diagnose and manage common skin problems that front-line health workers may encounter.
