Description

Based on 2018 data, it is estimated that 150+ million people are at risk of trachoma in 40+ endemic countries. This represents significant progress made in recent years, an almost 25% reduction in the number of people at risk. The action towards eliminating trachoma taken is on the right path but it needs to be reach everyone! Trachoma is a neglected tropical disease. It occurs in some of the poorest populations with limited access to clean water, sanitation, and healthcare, and is the world’s leading infectious cause of blindness. At present, we have a unique opportunity to eliminate this disease.
