Nigeria Halts Lymphatic Filiariasis in Two States

Lymphatic filariasis sufferers know the pain, disfigurement, and social stigma that accompany this tropical disease that affects the poorest of the poor. But now that The Carter Center and partners have stopped LF from spreading in two states in Nigeria, the program of prevention is on track to eliminate this disabling disease from the rest of Nigeria and the world.

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.
