Saporta Report recently published an article written by two members of the Health Campaign Effectiveness governance groups: Gregory Noland, Program Director for River Blindness, Lymphatic Filariasis, Schistosomiasis, and Malaria at the Carter Center, who serves on the HCE Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC), and Kashef Ijaz, MD, MPH, Vice President for Health Programs for the Carter Center, who serves on the HCE Leadership Team.


The article is a call for partnership and commitment. The elimination of river blindness in Nigeria’s Plateau and Nasarawa states, as confirmed by a recent analysis, shows the value of partnership and persistence in the fight against neglected tropical diseases.
