2013 progress report on the elimination of Trachoma by the WHO Alliance for the Global Elimination of Blinding Trachoma by the year 2020 (GET2020).
The number of people living in trachoma-endemic districts was estimated to have reduced from 314 million in 2011 to 229 million in 2013, according to the World Health Organization. The 2014 estimate for the global population at risk is 232 million, but is based on significantly more data than previous estimates. More than 80% of the burden of active trachoma is concentrated in 14 countries, where immediate action is needed.
L’OCCITANE en Provence has always put people at the heart of its operation. For more than 20 years, it has been committed to Caring for Sight, supporting projects around the world that help prevent blindness.
