Summary for R100 Project: End Trachoma Now
It is a tragedy that Trachoma exists. Australia is the world's last developed country where Trachoma, an infectious eye disease, still persists. Rotary’s “End Trachoma 2020” project is making inroads to closing the gap.
Trachoma exists in indigenous communities where there is overcrowding, poor hygiene and sanitation. Rotary provides mobile washing machines and sanitation programs to support and improve facial cleanliness. Our partners are GHD, Telstra, Yarra Valley Water and Monash University
