Trachoma is a painful and potentially blinding disease that affects 136 million people around the world. Most of these people live in poor and hard-to-reach areas.
Trachoma is preventable. But it takes a huge number of people to eliminate a disease like this – no one can do it alone. If any one of the puzzle pieces is missing, then individuals, families, communities and countries will continue to feel the harsh impact of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).
At Sightsavers, we play our part by coordinating many different people, and by ensuring everyone is equipped with the skills and information they need.
