Christoffel-Blindenmission (CBM), (2017)

LEAVING NO-ONE BEHIND | “A Journey to End NTDs – Elimination and Care” records what we have achieved over the last year and where we are now.

We care for those affected and we’re working to enhance community and government ownership through national health system strengthening, community engagement and cross-sectoral action.
