DOH: National Filariasis Elimination Program

Filariasis, more commonly known as elephantiasis, is a major parasitic infection which continues to be a public health problem in the Philippines. It is a painful and profoundly disfiguring disease which has a major economic and social impact on endemic regions.

Filariasis is prevalent in remote rural areas and in economically disadvantaged urban areas. Globally, the number of cases has increased due to worsening poverty. And since Filariasis is incapacitating to patients, it also prevents patients from having a normal working life, adversely affecting economic conditions at different levels.

The Department of Health, in collaboration with the World Health Organization, formulated the National Filariasis Elimination Program. The program's main objective is to eliminate Filariasis through its Mass Annual Treatment strategy and the creation of the National Advisory Group for Filariasis. This drive to eliminate the disease, started in 1963 and revitalized in 2000, is currently ongoing.
