Eliminating Trachoma in Areas with Limited Disease
Figure. The prevalence of clinically active trachoma (gray curve) and ocular chlamydial infection, as determined by DNA amplification tests (black curve, with 95% confidence intervals due to stratified sampling) in children 1–10 years of age in a village in Western Nepal over time. All children were examined at each visit, so no sampling confidence interval is indicated. Likewise, conjunctivae of all children were swabbed for evidence of infection at the May 2001 visit.
