Carter Center Update: The Year Ahead

The Year Ahead

Each new year arrives with its own set of challenges for The Carter Center and friends like you who make our work possible, and 2011 is no exception.  With your continued generosity, we can meet all of the crucial health and peace challenges we face in the coming year, including:

Continuing our pioneering work of integrating efforts against multiple diseases

In the world’s most impoverished areas, many people suffer from several preventable diseases simultaneously. By using the same volunteers and infrastructure to fight lymphatic filariasis, river blindness, and schistosomiasis in Nigeria, we can dramatically improve a sufferer’s quality of life and make your contributions go much further, saving as much as 40 percent on program costs.

We continue to apply strict diligence and determination as we near the finish line for Guinea worm eradication, a time when it is most important we not become overconfident.

Expanding the gains already made in ending the stigma of mental illness

This past November’s Rosalynn Carter Symposium on Mental Health Policy focused on reintegrating returning veterans into the lives they left behind and how post-traumatic stress disorder affects not only them, but their families.

Now we are putting our experience to work in Liberia. With two decades of work fostering peace and democracy, we have just begun a new five-year initiative to help create a sustainable mental health system in that country.

Working to foster dialogue between nations and parties is essential to preventing conflicts and building peace

No matter where in the world we are invited to go or how intense the differences we are asked to help ease, The Carter Center stands ready and eager to help, putting to work the unequaled trust we have earned over the years. We believe that without persistence and political courage, there can be no hope for progress in resolving differences.
