Trachoma continues to be a leading cause of blindness largely confined to developing countries. Trachoma control programs have primarily been oriented to drug therapy, an approach which may be successful if it is community-based. However, the costs to ensure long-term success are substantial. Community-based health education approaches to reduce risk factors currently provide the most promising approach for long-term trachoma control.
