Carter Center Coalitions

Since 1986, The Carter Center has remained a pioneer in neglected tropical diseases, targeting diseases that impact the people who live in some of the most forgotten and impoverished communities on earth. The Center also strives to improve access to mental health care. To share our hard-earned skills and knowledge, and to ensure the best public health outcomes worldwide, the Center participates in a number of disease-fighting coalitions.
