Two Countries, Two Diseases, One Island

In 2008, The Carter Center helped the Dominican Republic and Haiti and their partners launch a historic 18-month binational initiative to accelerate the elimination of two devastating mosquito-borne infections—malaria and lymphatic filariasis—from Hispaniola. Previously, the countries focused on control efforts--not elimination--and worked separately. Twelve months into the project, the two countries reinforced their united desire to pursue elimination by announcing detailed binational plans and budgets. Two local experts discuss their pioneering work in the border towns of Ouanaminthe, Haiti, and Dajabón, Dominican Republic.
