Nobody Should Have to Do This

The world's leading cause of preventable blindness, trachoma spreads easily from person to person. Of the 320 million people at risk for trachoma, most are children. Women are almost twice as likely as men to develop the advanced stage of the disease, which can lead to painful disability or blindness. Carter Center Trachoma Control Program Director Dr. Paul Emerson explains why no one should have to suffer from this horrible disease.
