Lymphatic Filariasis Elimination Program: Alleviating Suffering, Ending Shame

In a collaborative effort, The Carter Center and its partners are working to show that the transmission of lymphatic filariasis can be interrupted on a large scale in Nigeria with mass community drug treatment and health education. Lymphatic filariasis, a parasitic disease transmitted by mosquitoes, is a leading cause of permanent and long-term disability. In its severest form, lymphatic filariasis leads to elephantiasis — a crippling condition in which limbs or other parts of the body are grotesquely swollen or enlarged.

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.
