Follow-up study of positive cases of LF in 3 districts post success of TAS-II of Nepal

Project Summary:
TAS is considered to be successful if the frequency of the RDT-positive cases is under the critical cut-off value. But, it cannot, however,
be ignored that the small group of people positive for antigenemia would likely go away without any intervention. Thus, the particular community and its adjacent communities need to be surveyed by FTS to identify any hotspots or any potential residual transmission.
