What have we learned?

Week 4 has looked at how we address the problem of VL and how to devise and implement a VL control programme. The material covered in the steps is by no means exhaustive. We do hope, however, that it has given you an idea of the core aspects of a VL control and elimination programme that you will need to think about – from the micro (key players at the local, community-based level) to the macro (national and international health systems).

When you feel happy with the material and ideas covered in a step, please Mark as complete. If you’ve been doing this you can check your progress using the Progress tab at the top of each page.
