    From witches to treated trachoma patients

    Misanet.com / IPS, 2 August - In the northern Tanzanian district of Shinyanga, it has become a common practice to lynch old women with bloodshot eyes, usually on suspicion that they are witches. Now, newly introduced teaching of communities on how to fight trachoma reduces the withhunt.
