In 2008, Carter Center staffer Adamu Sallau Keana saw -- literally -- Nigeria's last case of Guinea worm disease. Today in the Center's Malaria Control Program, he is a member of the team tasked with preventing the mosquito-borne disease that kills an estimated 300,000 or more Nigerians each year. And he's using lessons learned from Nigeria's Guinea worm success story to make it happen.
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.
