PCT databank

The PCT Databank presents historical data as reported to WHO. This tool is designed to empower users to leverage their familiarity with Excel and the simplicity of the Global Health Observatory (GHO) to rapidly construct summaries that can be shared as they are viewed. Critical data and analyses for key preventive chemotherapy health themes, depicting the current situation, trends and tabular data are presented. Links to supporting information are also provided.

Information can be searched for by region, country, year or by disease-specific indicator. There are five modules covering lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis, schistosomiasis, soil-transmitted helminthiases and trachoma.

We would like to be informed if you have additional data or errors have been made in detailing your activities or if you have any other comments. To provide your information please contact us at

Thank you for your collaboration.
