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.
