A Life's Work: Rodrigo Lepe

Since 1930, Mexican health officials have battled river blindness (onchocerciasis) in rural communities. For nearly 40 years, onchocerciasis brigade worker Rodrigo Lepe has been on the job.

Today, thanks to the assistance of The Carter Center's OEPA, Mexico stands on the brink of wiping out the disease. Follow Lepe as he takes the final steps in his career's journey, making sure this debilitating disease is gone for good.
