Trachoma is the most common infectious cause of blindness. It is found in poor rural communities where access to health care, water and sanitation are inadequate. Ethiopia has a greater burden of trachoma than any other country. This lecture will explore prospects for eliminating trachoma as a public health problem by the year 2020.

Anthony Solomon is a Wellcome Trust Intermediate Clinical Fellow/Senior Lecturer in Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine at LSHTM, the Chief Scientist to the Global Trachoma Mapping Project, and a Consultant Physician at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases.
