This evening while reading about some of the latest rumored ReDS outbreaks, I realized – while I have practical experience in dealing with the disease, and keep up with the news like anyone else, I don’t really know that much concrete information about the disease! So I spent some time researching facts. For example, there are about 25 million people known to be infected, with a suspected 5 million in the early stages. That means, out of the 7.6b people on earth…1 in 250 has ReDS!

1 in 250 people has ReDS

I founded the Public Health Information superstructure to develop materials like this poster that will help people understand the disease and stay safe in an uncertain world. Wanna help? Join us on the site, or use this poster to help your community learn about ReDS!
