Impact of Incentive Health Interventions and Triple Drug Administration on Treatment Coverage

Jane Whitton of Schistosomiasis Control Initiative in the United Kingdom will test whether grouping treatments for three neglected tropical diseases alongside motivating people to come for the treatments by offering incentives such as free shoes or free school meals can increase coverage and better reduce disease incidence. Current treatment campaigns for different diseases run in parallel, requiring multiple clinic visits, which is inconvenient. They will perform a clustered randomized control trial with 75 villages to test whether administering the treatments during one visit, and offering an additional incentive, increases coverage.
