Community based mass drug administration (MDA) has been used as strategy for countering neglected tropical diseases. However, there is little known about what combination of community medicine distributor workload is ideal for attaining high treatment rates (over 65-75%) in villages. This study involved tracking and evaluating routine community-based MDA in the Mayuge district of Uganda. The workloads of different community medicine distributors were used to determine the optimal division of labor for attaining high village treatment rates.
