Excerpted from the website:
- Trachoma is a hidden disease
- Few people have heard of trachoma, a preventable disease that threatens to blind nearly 10 percent of the world’s population. It remains hidden in rural communities where people live in overcrowded conditions with limited access to water and health care. Because the disease is not fatal, it is often overlooked as a priority for public-health intervention. In some communities, the disease is so common that blindness from trachoma is simply accepted as a fact of life. Yet trachoma is treatable, and the suffering that it causes is avoidable.
