  This handbook is meant to provide a user-friendly, step-by-step approach for the management of AEs-f-MDA and the reporting of SAEs by managers of preventive chemotherapy programs. It is designed to supplement the recently released, more extensive WHO guidelines “Assuring Safety Of Preventive Chemotherapy Interventions For The Control Of Neglected Tropical Diseases: Practical Advice For National Programme Managers On The Prevention, Detection And Management Of Serious Adverse Events” and draws heavily from the rich experience of immunization programs. The Handbook was developed by RTI International in collaboration with the Task Force for Global Health and many individuals and organizations.  It was made possible with the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) as part of the ENVISION project.
