Sudan Community Eliminates River Blindness

Sudan’s Ministry of Health, with help from The Carter Center and partners, has eliminated river blindness in one of its key transmission zones, freeing about 100,000 people from the disease in the community of Abu Hamad.

This achievement has great implications for the more than 120 million people at risk of being infected with the debilitating disease, especially since a majority of the cases occur in Africa where river blindness was once thought to be too difficult to conquer.
