Today is World Sight Day!

12 October 2017

Today is World Sight Day! The Mectizan Donation Program would like to take this opportunity to thank Merck & Co., Inc. (known as MSD outside the U.S. and Canada) for 30 years of Mectizan donation for the control and elimination of river blindness (onchocerciasis). 

We also thank our partners in the global effort to eliminate river blindness, particularly the endemic countries and their community drug distributors, along with the NGOs, the donor community, and WHO partners. 

Together we will see the end!
