More about the videos

This short advocacy film depicts the tragedy of Buruli ulcer, an infectious disease that destroys large areas of skin when detected and treated late. Against this tragic backdrop, the overarching message is one of hope and promise, thanks to the introduction of antibiotics. Using facts, figures, and moving testimonials, the film brings much good news.
