Parasitic Disease on the Tibetan Plateau | Boulder-Lhasa Sister City Project
10.22.15

The Boulder-Lhasa Sister City Project partnered with medical specialists from around the world to evaluate and treat Echinococcosis, a parasitic disease, in a small village on the Tibetan Plateau. Echinococcosis is a deadly parasite that affects an estimated 3% of people living on the plateau, as access to clean water and hygiene education is limited.
