The Power of Partnership: The UAE & The Carter Center Celebrate 30 Years

Join The Carter Center and the United Arab Emirates to celebrate 30 years of partnership and the announcement of a major gift aimed at helping us finish the job of eradicating Guinea worm once and for all! Only one other human disease (smallpox) has ever been eradicated, but we and our dedicated partners are pushing hard to make Guinea worm the second.

Press Release | His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan Renews Commitment to Guinea Worm Disease Efforts Through Partnership with The Carter Center

WHEN: Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 9 a.m. EST.
WHERE: Right here on YouTube or

Guinea worm eradication is a story of tenacity and dedication. Since former U.S. President
Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter began championing this neglected disease, The Carter Center and its partners have reduced worldwide cases by 99.99% and, today, Guinea worm is poised to be the second human disease to be eradicated after smallpox.

It’s also a story of partnership. In 1990, the UAE’s late founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, made a personal donation to the Carter Center’s Guinea Worm Eradication Program, initiating a long-standing commitment by Abu Dhabi’s ruling family to disease eradication. The decades-long partnership continues today under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.

For 30 years the UAE-Carter Center partnership has made measurable impact to improve lives and has expanded to eliminate additional neglected tropical disease (NTD) that affect the world’s poorest and most vulnerable communities.

Hear reflections on the power of partnership and the critical role it plays in accelerating progress to beat NTDs.

NOTE: This special event is part of a series leading up to the public launch of the new WHO 2030 NTD Road Map and the second annual World NTD Day.
