“We work with local organizations and government agencies to manage NTD’s and help patients in their social and economic integration in society”. In general, we focus on;

  • lymphatic filariasis (or elephantiases)
  • Onchoceriasis (river blindness)
  • Schistosomiasis (snail fever)
  • Trachoma (blinding eye infection)
  • Selected Soil-transmitted helminths (hookworm, roundworm and whipworm)
