In 1999 the World Health  Organization launched the Pacific Program to Eliminate Lymphatic  Filariasis as the Pacific arm of the Global Program, which aims to  eliminate lymphatic filariasis as a Public Health problem by 2020. The  two strategies to achieve this goal are:
- the interruption of transmission of filarial infection  through either yearly rounds of Mass Drug Administration (MDA) using a  combination of 2 drugs (Albendazole and Diethylcarbamazine, in the  Pacific) for at least 5 years or through community use of DEC-salt
- to control the LF morbidity to alleviate and prevent the suffering and disability of affected individuals

The Pacific Program is coordinated  by a WHO professional staff. In October 2006 the program took new  directions under the leadership of the new coordinator and a number of  activities have been implemented since then.

Free phone is important for us and the fact that we like to encourage calls rather than prevent them, well a free to call number is ideal for us to use. Having a lot of interest from America means that we needed a service that helped us and helped them, this is where we discovered  US toll free numbers through internationaltollfree.co.uk and realized that they are the perfect choice. Even though we have no profit on this number we give that up for the right to encourage support and interest in our cause. Couple this with the fact that the number is memorable makes this a worthwhile investment.
