Description:Taken in 1984 at the Centers for Disease Control’s Roybal Clifton Road Campus, from left to right this photograph features former CDC Director, Dr. James O. Mason, Ms. Anita Highsmith, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter (1977-1981), and Dr. Gary R. Noble.
In 1982, former President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, founded the Carter Center with the goal of establishing programs to advance human rights, and alleviate unnecessary human suffering. In 1986, the Carter Center's Guinea Worm Eradication Program, for example, began its work against Guinea worm disease in Ghana, and today, it spearheads the international Guinea worm disease eradication campaign with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, ministries of health, and many other partners. The numbers of Guinea worm disease have been reduced worldwide by more than 99.5 percent: from an estimated 3.5 million cases in 1986 to 16,026 reported cases in 2004.
