The MRC teams conducted house to house surveys in all eastern Sennar locality for early cases detection. Suspected cases were referred to Wad Onsa Mycetoma satellite centre for management. 73 Village were surveyed, 12181 households were screened, and 973 suspected cases detected and managed. Different health education events were conducted during these campaigns, and that included: house-house interviews, open theatre, presentations, meetings and focal group discussions. That resulted in more Mycetoma awareness, and advocacy, early case detection, more patients with small early lesion were managed, improved local villages hygiene and environment.
