Ending River Blindness in Mexico

Although Irene Hernandéz lost her sight to river blindness more than four decades ago, she is an active grandmother of 10, has raised a large family, and managed a busy household. Now, thanks to a Carter Center project with national partners, she is one of the last people in Mexico to suffer this fate. With its focus on the remaining endemic areas, the Center-sponsored Onchocerciasis Elimination Program of the Americas is nearing its goal to wipe out river blindness in the region.

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.
