Watch public health specialists from The Carter Center as they journey to the black fly's breeding area, discover how freshwater crabs play a unique role in the life cycle of the insect, and learn how dedicated field workers devote tireless efforts to the demanding job of eradicating the fly and the terrible disease it carries.
