WSP Information Package 

The WSP Communications Information Package provides an overview of the program, including the WSP global and country approach for scabies control, based on key research by MCRI and partners. The WSP Info package is designed to be shared amongst colleagues and friends. 


WSP Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Plan

The WSP Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Plan is a working document that presents a plan for monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of scabies mass drug administration programs. The document is designed to complement the MDA implementation plan and does not at this stage outline an M&E plan for control programs using innovative and intensified disease management (IDM) strategy. The plan has been developed by the World Scabies Program (WSP) to support programs planned for Fiji and Solomon Islands, and to provide the basis of an M&E plan for future scabies control programs globally.


WSP Scabies Overview

The WSP Scabies Overview is a two page document designed to provide a quick overview of what scabies is, how scabies is transmitted, scabies impacts and complications and the global burden of scabies.


Scabies Control Targets from the World Health Organization NTD Roadmap 2021 - 2030

The Scabies Control Targets from the WHO NTD Roadmap 2030 is a high-level strategic document and advocacy tool, aimed at strengthening programmatic response to scabies control through shared goals and disease specific targets backed by smarter investments. 


World Health Organization Informal Consultation on a Framework for Scabies Control

In 2017, the Strategic and Technical Advisory Group of the WHO Department of Control of Neglected
Tropical Diseases recommended that the department add scabies to its portfolio. The recommendation
was made to respond to the high burden of scabies and its complications, particularly in areas with limited access to health care, and in the light of new public health control strategies for reducing the burden. In order to find agreement on common strategies and to identify research priorities for a global control strategy, a WHO Informal WHO Consultation on a Framework for Scabies Control was organized. The meeting took place at the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific in Manila, Philippines. The consultation resulted in recommendations for mapping and control strategies, research priorities and programmatic needs.

NNN Conference Report 2021

The Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) NGO Network is a global forum for NGOs to contribute to the global control, elimination, and management of consequences of NTDs outlined within the internationally agreed World Health Organisation NTD Roadmap.

In 2021, the 12th annual conference of the NNN celebrated the launch of the WHO Road Map for NTDs, 2021–2030 and encouraged NTD NGOs to commit to delivering the paradigm shifts laid out in the new road map. This free, three-day event featured 16 exciting workshops and two rapid fire sessions. The plenaries included a high-level panel discussion, a Special Session and exciting NTD Innovation Prizes. 

At the conference, WSP presented a Rapid Fire Session which focused on how countries with endemic scabies (>10%) can take up a public health approach to control scabies by integrating activities for scabies with other NTDs programs. The session also highlighted how WSP is developing ready-to-implement materials and resources that can shared with other countries and programs who wish to implement scabies control programs.

The NNN Conference Report 2021 is now available.
