  1. MDA, mass drug administration
  2. *Only villages originally planned for MDA coverage and reached were included in this analysis.
  3. Target population calculated as 80% of total population.
  4. In Agats subdistrict, the village of Bis Agats received multiple sweeping rounds (since it was near MSF headquarters and thus most accessible) and numerous visitors from neighboring villages, resulting in very high coverage (157%) that could possibly skew the overall coverage picture of Agats. If Bis Agats is excluded, then total population = 5758, target population = 4606, coverage n = 1952, and % coverage = 42.4%.
