Making Health House Calls in Nigeria

In 2013, The Carter Center and partners trained more than 75,000 community directed distributors (CDDs) in Nigeria who go door-to-door providing preventive medicines and offering health education to friends, family, and neighbors. These unsung heroes volunteer their time and service to their communities and have become an effective weapon in the battle against neglected tropical diseases.

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.
