LF Elimination Program Treats Over Half Billion People and Protects Millions More From Debilitating Disease
Date:10/7/2008

te Lymphatic Filariasis began in 1997 when the World Health Assembly unanimously resolved to eliminate the disease globally as a public health problem. In 1998, two pharmaceutical companies -- GlaxoSmithKline (then SmithKline Beecham) and Merck & Co., Inc. -- partnered with WHO and pledged to donate two of the drugs necessary for LF elimination (albendazole and Mectizan(R), respectively) to treat as many people as necessary for as long as required, an unprecedented donation to global public health. This partnership along with others from the public and private sector evolved into the Global Alliance to Eliminate LF. This Alliance is a free and unrestricted partnership of interested groups with the LF endemic countries at the core with the objective of advocating for LF elimination and working towards resource mobilization.
