This PowerPoint outlines a  global strategic plan, 2020 INSight, to eliminate blinding trachoma by the year 2020.  The presentation describes the impact of trachoma and then lays out 2020 INSight's actions and milestones from the years 2011 to 2020.

The strategic plan is structured around four questions:

1.  Where are we? 

This section reviews the current state of trachoma prevalence and elimination efforts, including the World Health Organization-endorsed SAFE (Surgery, Antibiotics, Facial cleanliness and Environmental change) strategy.

2.  Where do we want to go? 

Provides an overview of the interventions needed to eliminate trachoma.  Specifically, it recommends scaling up the interventions outlined in the SAFE strategy.  

3.  How do we get there? 

Highlights milestones for progress to eliminating blinding trachoma by 2020.  This includes a timeline map of milestones. While the plan stops at 2020, it includes strategies for sustained trachoma monitoring and control after 2020.

4.  What is the cost of eliminating trachoma? 

Reviews the costs associated with this strategic plan.

2020 INSight was created by the International Coalition for Trachoma Control.  The presentation recommends the below Web sites for more information:
