National coverage in endemic regions as reported by the WHO. The age-specific (SAC and adults) coverages, were estimated from the national figures by assuming that SAC account for 70 % of all those treated [4], and are 46 % of the current Population requiring PC (based on PCT data bank [22]). The trends in SAC and adult coverage are represented by the orange and grey lines, respectively. Solid lines represent reported figures and broken lines the project trends in coverage to reach 75 % coverage for SAC in 2020 and maintain the current ratio of SAC/adult coverage. In model projections, coverage levels are assumed to be constant after 2020
