End Trochoma

 End Trochoma Now 

 

Trachoma is the leading cause of infectious blindness in the world - 1.9 million are blind or severely vision impaired from trachoma, and 200 million are still at risk.

• Australia is the last developed country to still have trachoma.

• Australia’s coordinated effort in treatment began in 2009, resulting in significant rate reductions from 21% to 4.6% in 2015.

• Without prevention however, trachoma will continue to persist. To stop trachoma transmission, and to stop trachoma bouncing back again, we must make sure that all children in affected communities are able to keep their faces clean, and have safe and functional washing facilities.
