Background: Onchocerciasis can be effectively controlled by annual mass treatment with ivermectin in endemic communities. However, in communities that are endemic for loiasis there may be significant risk of severe adverse reactions after ivermectin treatment. Planning of control requires therefore mapping of these two infections using rapid assessment tools developed for each disease. These tools were initially implemented independently till the feasibility of combining them was demonstrated.
