What We Do

Infectious Disease Control

For 25 years we have worked to reduce some of the worst killers in Africa. Diarrhoeal illness and waterborne disease remains our top priority. Our success in diarrhoea control has been replicated around the world and ICROSS with College of Surgeons in Dublin have produced the only three clinical control trials of solar disinfection to reduce diarrhoea.

Our infectious disease programme cover a wide range of diseases like cholera typhoid and diarrhoea as well as trachoma infections and sexually transmitted infections. ICROSS works with many pastoral and nomadic tribes preventing disease through culture and local language.
