WHO Director-General Expresses Support for Global Campaign to Eradicate Guinea Worm Disease

In this short video, WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus expresses support for the global campaign to eradicate Guinea worm disease and partner efforts to eliminate neglected tropical diseases.

Dr. Tedros personally thanks former U.S. President Jimmy Carter for his leadership in the fight against Guinea worm and The Carter Center for being a cornerstone of the campaign.

“Our ultimate goal is universal health coverage,” Dr. Tedros says, “so that all people receive the health services they need without facing financial hardship.”

The video was screened at The Carter Center in Atlanta in March.
