Antibiotics For Eye Disease Saving Ethiopia's Children

An antibiotic treatment given to save children's eyesight is actually saving their lives. In Ethiopia's Amhara region, where 60 percent of children suffer from trachoma, The Carter Center -- with regional and international partners -- supports mass drug administration including Zithromax®, donated by Pfizer Inc. Antibiotics administered for trachoma, a bacterial eye infection that is the world's leading preventable cause of blindness, are treating other ailments and reducing Ethiopia's high rates of child mortality.
