To determine to what extent river blindness disease (onchocercaiasis) is being transmitted, The Carter Center and partners turn to science to make it happen. See how microbiologist Tom Unnasch and lab technicians in river blindness endemic countries in Africa and the Americas use science and technology to prove The Center is winning the fight against this widespread and debilitating disease.
