Eradicating Infectious Diseases: Yaws
Yaws is an incredibly painful disease that mostly affects children under the age of 15. If not treated, it destroys the bones in the face causing horrific facial disfiguration.
Under the direction of The World Health Organization (WHO) we are working towards eradicating this disease so no child ever suffers from it again, in the same way that smallpox has been eradicated.
Treatment costs just £2 per person to provide them with a single oral dose of an antibiotic to cure them.
