ATLANTA — Carter Center Chief Executive Officer Ambassador (ret.) Mary Ann Peters will visit Sudan Nov. 18 and 19 to explore ways The Carter Center can contribute to durable peace and advance efforts to control or eliminate neglected tropical diseases, particularly river blindness and trachoma.

Peters will meet with the Center’s field staff, members of government, and the international community.

“Although this is my first trip to Sudan as CEO, The Carter Center has been working with the people of Sudan to support peace and health since 1986,” Peters said. “I look forward to meeting with project leaders to learn more about our work in Sudan and discuss possible future endeavors focused on synergies between our peace and health activities. The Carter Center is committed to help secure a better future for all Sudanese.”
