Table 2 Settings and treatment strategies used within the model simulations showing the likelihood of achieving elimination. Settings in non-bold text were not focused on in the analysis due to very low/high likelihood of achieving elimination. Mean baseline prevalence is shown for across the entire community (all ages). Corresponding age-specific contact rates for the low and high adult burden settings are shown in Table 1
