STH Policy Assessment Discussion Guide


This discussion guide is intended to enable an assessment of policies that support effective national-level control of STH.The Discussion Guide is used to assess the degree to which relevant STH program policies exist at the national level, and are effectively utilized to achieve STH program goals throughout the service delivery system. The tool intends to inform and be used primarily by national, ministry of health-led NTD and STH programs. Partners to national STH programs, including NGOs which are part of the STH Coalition, may find the tool helpful to determine policy making or implementation needs to best support national control efforts. A companion document (National Policy Assessment Facilitators Guide) provides detailed steps to planning the administration of the STH Policy Assessment.
