The Art of Education in Disease Elimination

Onchocerciasis, also known as river blindness, is nearly wiped out in the Americas, and health education is one of the weapons that has led to its demise.

Morales believes the innovative programs created to teach endemic communities about disease will have a lasting positive effect that reaches far beyond the goal of elimination.
