Eliminating River Blindness in the Americas

The Carter Center's Onchocerciasis Elimination Program of the Americas (OEPA) is leading a coalition of partners in a historic effort to eliminate river blindness (onchocerciasis) from the Western Hemisphere by 2015. When the effort began in 1993, the disease existed in 13 pockets in six nations. To date, Colombia and Ecuador have stopped transmission entirely, and Mexico is poised to end the disease soon.
Join villagers and volunteers working to keep the disease at bay in Chiapas—the last area in Mexico where cases remain. Ending this devastating disease will help build a stronger economy and a brighter future for the next generation.

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.
