Founded in 1993, the University of Notre Dame Haiti Program seeks to achieve the historic goal of eliminating Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) in Haiti by 2020. LF, a mosquito-borne disease that affects over 2 million Haitians, is the second leading cause of long-term disfigurement and disability worldwide. It can be eliminated in Haiti through mass drug administration and the distribution of co-fortified salt. The Haiti Program is partnering with the Haitian Ministry of Health, corporations, and non-governmental organizations to forever eliminate the disease in Haiti and alleviate the suffering of Haitians infected with LF. Our innovative work also provides an exportable model for LF elimination in other developing nations.
