AB  - BACKGROUND: To understand the situation of active trachoma among children aged 6 
      to 8 years old and scarring trachoma among those aged 15 and over in Yunnan
      Province, South-western China. METHODS: A rapid assessment of trachoma was
      conducted to determine the presence or absence of trachoma in Yunnan. Through
      risk assessment, 9 sites in 8 suspected trachoma epidemic counties were selected.
      Trachoma Rapid Assessment was conducted in these areas afterwards. Within each
      sites, 50 students from grade one in local primary school and adults aged 15 and 
      above with suspected scarring trachoma were examined by survey teams. RESULTS: A 
      total of 450 children aged 6-8 years and 160 adults aged 15 and above were
      screened in 9 sites of 8 counties. Only 1 case of active trachoma was found.
      Detection rate of active trachoma in children was 0.2%(1/450) in all sites and 2%
      (1/50)in Pingbian County. Out of 150 adults only 1 case of TT and 1 case of CO
      were found in all the highest at risk communities. People with scarring trachoma 
      were aged over 60 years. CONCLUSIONS: The active trachoma was rarely seen and
      trachoma is unlikely to be a significant public health problem in Yunnan
      Province, South-western China.
