A educational brochure was designed to help educate the people in the region of Prudentopolis, Brazil about the possible means of preventing Toxoplasmosis gondii infection. The brochure resulted from the concern of several individuals after analyzing the data compiled from an Amigos Eye Care mission to Brazil. On this trip, it was noted that there was a significantly higher prevalence of ocular toxoplasmosis in the region as compared to the United States.
