WHO Scabies meeting

February 2019, Manila

August 11, 2019 at 9:46 PM

Several members of IACS attended the ‘WHO Informal Consultation on a Framework for Scabies Control’ in Manila in February. This was an excellent, highly productive three-day meeting convened to help inform a framework for global scabies control activities.

We would like to recognise the efforts of Paul Cantey (WHO Medical Officer for Scabies) and Aya Yajima (WHO Technical Officer for Neglected Tropical Diseases in the Western Pacific region) for their leadership and facilitation of this meeting. The meeting report is being finalised and will be available for distribution later this year.
