From July 2014 through September 2019, Helen Keller led USAID’s flagship program, the Morbidity Management and Disability Prevention Project, working primarily in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, and Ethiopia as well as at the global level. With national Ministries of Health leading program planning and implementation in each country and support from in-country implementing partners (Sightsavers in Cameroon and RTI International with the Fred Hollows Foundation and Light For The World in Ethiopia), the project brought life-changing trichiasis and hydrocele surgery to tens of thousands, giving them a new chance at life.

In addition to the life-changing achievements at the country level, the project made important contributions at the global level. By documenting lessons learned, investigating promising practices, and sharing knowledge widely, the MMDP Project in collaboration with other partners developed tools and resources that the international community is already using in trachoma and LF programs in other countries. Below is a list of those resources for LF, many of which are available in French.
