Investing in the Next Generation

Thirteen-year-old Jude Musa from Gidan Gimba village in Nasarawa State, Nigeria, goes to school, plays soccer, and hopes one day to become a soldier or drummer. Three years ago, however, Jude noticed symptoms of schistosomiasis, or "snail fever," a waterborne parasitic infection that damages internal organs and commonly affects school-aged children, who come into contact with the disease during their daily chores or at play in activities involving fresh water.

Watch this video to learn more about Jude and the Carter Center's initiative to provide health education and treatment for schistosomiasis in Nigeria, the world's most endemic country for this preventable but devastating disease.
