  1. Dracunculiasis eradication : beginning of the end.

    Article - En anglais

    Beginning with the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (1981-1990), an increasingly broad coalition of international and bilateral agencies, organizations, private companies, and other institutions have joined forces to eradicate dracunculiasis (Guinea worm disease).

    From an estimated annual incidence of 10 million persons just before the campaign began, the remaining incidence of cases is now less than two million.

    More than 23,000 villages are known to be endemic.

    All 18 countries where the disease is still endemic have completed or begun nationwide searches to identify endemic villages, except Kenya.
