Earlier this month, the Solomon Islands WSP team in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Medical services completed the post MDA prevalence survey training. The WSP Program Lead and Senior Program Officer travelled from the Melbourne office to attend the trainings in the Solomon Islands.
Nurses were trained on clinical skin examinations for scabies and infection, field communications, consent and survey logistics. Data collectors were trained on how to use a survey tool called Redcap in order to collect survey data on electronic tablets. The scabies prevalence survey is part of an integrated survey with trachoma and yaws. A big congratulations to all involved!
