Today the treatment Mectizan® is used to prevent river blindness, which was endemic in Kaduna before Sightsavers began their intervention 10 years ago. This year is 25 years since the pharmceutical Merck & Co Inc took the historic decision to donate the anti-parasitic treatment free of charge for as long as it is needed.
