• Two Nations, One Island: Dr Greg Noland on disease elimination in Hispaniola


In this new episode of Elimination Exchange, Dr Greg Noland of The Carter Center shares insights on the Center’s Hispaniola Initiative, which works with the ministries of health in Haiti and the Dominican Republic to eliminate malaria and lymphatic filariasis from the countries’ shared island, Hispaniola.

“Bringing the two ministries together (..) shows the benefits of bringing two nations together for a common cause… they [DR and Haiti] have a long and sometimes fractious relationship, but bringing the ministries together in a common cause effort yields beautiful results.” – Dr Greg Noland
