PDF File Size: 321 KB | Download   
In 1996, WHO initiated the GET 2020 programme (Global Elimination of Trachoma by the year 2020) and declared that high priority should be given to trachoma control in Nepal. The 1981 Nepal Blindness Survey found trachoma to be the second leading cause of blindness after cataract, with 75% of trachoma cases occurring in the far western region of the country. Blinding trachoma was particularly prevalent among the disadvantaged Tharu ethnic group in this region.
