All five of the most common neglected tropical diseases are present here: trachoma, river blindness, lymphatic filariasis, schistosomiasis (known as ‘snail fever’), and soil-transmitted helminths (AKA intestinal worms). Our programmes in Tanzania mainly focus on preventing and treating trachoma, and providing cataract operations for those who need them.
