The MMDP Project has two Technical Advisory Boards (TABs) that serve as consultative bodies to guide the project’s technical direction. The Trachoma TAB is composed of technical experts with trachoma programming and trichiasis surgery experience, and the Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) TAB includes technical experts with LF programming, lymphedema management, and hydrocele surgery experience. Each of the TABs meets on a quarterly basis with the project to discuss priorities and technical strategies as the project supports countries to meet the elimination goals for trachoma and LF.
