Out Now: 2017 Advisory Committee Report
The STH Advisory Committee is an independent group of experts in the areas of policy, strategy, research, and program implementation related to soil-transmitted helminthiasis control. Individual STHAC members are specialists in child health, clinical medicine, diagnostic sciences, education, epidemiology, parasitology, public health program implementation, spatial statistics, and water, sanitation and hygiene.
As the technical and scientific arm of the STH Coalition, the STHAC holds an annual meeting to address current programmatic and technical issues relevant to the global campaign to control STH. While considering the latest research, the STHAC formulates guidance to the World Health Organization, STH Coalition partners, implementers, pharma, and researchers. The 2017 meeting participants included STHAC members and observers. Children Without Worms serves as the secretariat for the STHAC.
