Women and Trachoma

Seventy-five percent of the world's population blinded by trachoma are women, who—with their families and communities—are profoundly impacted when they are stricken by the preventable disease. The Carter Center's Trachoma Control Program, in partnership with international organizations and ministries of health, is helping improve sanitation and personal hygiene and distributing antibiotics—all in an effort to eliminate blinding trachoma from six African countries.

Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
