Global Health Frontiers: Dark Forest, Black Fly
Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
In poor, remote communities across Africa, parasitic worms transmitted by small black flies infect millions. The resulting river blindness torments sufferers with intense itching, and eventually robs them of their sight. This documentary travels to the front lines of Uganda's fight to eradicate this devastating disease. Narrated by Mia Farrow, it highlights the field work and insights of scientists, health professionals and humanitarians, including former President Jimmy Carter, committed to combating river blindness.
