Podcast: Community views on mass drug administration for filariasis: a qualitative evidence synthesis

12 Jul 2022

This is the case with mass drug administration for filariasis, which is a parasitic disease that can result in swollen limbs and disability and, in February 2022, the Cochrane Infectious Diseases group, based at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in the UK, published a qualitative evidence synthesis on community views about this intervention.
