Fighting Trachoma in Uganda

Trachoma is the second leading cause of blindness in Uganda and the Karamoja region has the country’s highest infection rate. During World Sight Day celebrations last week, the Lions of Uganda and other partners, including the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust and The Carter Center, showed their support for eliminating trachoma from Uganda by 2020.
