On September 25-26, a meeting for the development of WHO guidelines for diagnosis and treatment for Taenia solium neurocysticercosis (NCC) took place at the WHO headquarters in Geneva. Experts with various backgrounds in this field from all over the world came together to discuss and agree on recommendations.

As a preparation, the systematic review team (Annette Abraham & Javier Bustos) had summarized all the available evidence in this field. They were supervised by Prof. Winkler and Prof. Garcia and got methodological input from Prof. Carabin (methods expert). The discussion by the experts was based on the resulting evidence profiles and recommendations were drafted during the meeting.

These guidelines aim to improve the care for NCC patients and provide health practitioners worldwide with a guidance.
