Carter Center Accomplishments

The Carter Center is guided by the principles of our founders, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn. Founded, in partnership with Emory University, on a fundamental commitment to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering, the Center seeks to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy, and improve health.

Highlights

  • Observing 113 elections in 39 countries to help establish and strengthen democracies
  • Furthering avenues to peace in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Liberia, Sudan, South Sudan, Uganda, the Korean Peninsula, Haiti, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Middle East
  • Helping to establish a village-based health care delivery system in thousands of communities in Africa that now have trained health care personnel and volunteers to distribute drugs and provide health education
  • Strengthening international standards for human rights and the voices of individuals defending those rights in their communities worldwide
  • Pioneering new public health approaches to preventing or controlling devastating neglected diseases in Africa and Latin America
  • Advancing efforts to improve mental health care and diminish the stigma against people with mental illnesses.
