#1 Cause of Preventable Blindness

June 3, 2007

“Nobody need suffer a life of misery, pain, eventual blindness, and early death from their trachoma. We have for trachoma a strategy that works, and we’ve applied it successfully in southern Sudan–which is the most difficult place to work in the world–and made it work.”

–Dr. Paul Emerson, director of the Carter Center’s Trachoma Control Program, from Laura Svienty’s “Into Africa” piece on the Carter Center’s fight against controllable blindness
