Captured in the Lushoto District, Tanga Region, Tanzania, this 2014 image entitled, Inspiring the Future in Tanga Region, Tanzania, depicted Damas Anthony, a young Tanzanian enumerator, who was enrolling a school boy in a transmission assessment survey (TAS). The boy, and 19 of his classmates, were enrolled in the survey, and tested for parasitic infection. Countries that have consistently implemented mass drug administration (MDA) of ivermectin, plus albendazole for lymphatic filariasis (LF), are eligible for World Health Organization (WHO)-recommended TAS. Tanzania recently conducted TASs in several qualifying communities, including this mountainous district of Lushoto. The CDC provided technical assistance to the Ministry of Health in Tanzania, including training young enumerators to enroll parents, and their young children.
