The Carter Center- River Blindness in the Americas

Public Broadcasting Atlanta's "This is Atlanta with Alicia Steel" features an in-depth look at the progress to eliminate river blindness in the Western Hemisphere. Transmitted by the bites of small black flies, onchocerciasis (often called river blindness) is a parasitic disease that can cause severe skin irritation, diminished vision, and sometimes blindness.

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.
