Figure 11

Probability of eradication under a strategy of 4 rounds of TCT with a varying number of rounds of TTT. Additional treatment rounds have coverages of 0% (blue), 1% (yellow), 2% (green), 3% (red), 4% (purple), and 5% (brown). Low-coverage treatment of infected persons and their household contacts occurs once a month. Parameters are inferred from data collected from the Solomon Islands in 2013. TCT, total community treatment; TTT, total targeted treatment.
