Living with Complications from Lymphatic Filariasis

Working with Nigeria's Federal Ministry of Health, The Carter Center is winning the battle against lymphatic filariasis (LF) in Nigeria. About 120 million people worldwide are infected with this neglected tropical disease which causes enormous swellings of the limbs and genitals and dangerous secondary infections.

Rahab Joshua, of Plateau State, Nigeria, knows the pain of LF. She allowed us to tell her story of what it's like to live with a disease that has left her permanently disabled and physically disfigured.

Learn more about the Carter Center's Lymphatic Filariasis Program here: http://www.cartercenter.org/health/lf/index.html

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.
