  • Description:
    ETHIOPIA! COTE D’IVOIRE! BURKINA FASO! TOGO!

    ALL REPORT NO INDIGENOUS CASES FOR FIRST TIME IN 2007

    The global Guinea Worm Eradication Program marked a major milestone in 2007, when four countries, Ethiopia, Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso and Togo reported zero indigenous cases for a full calendar year for the first time. These four countries thus appear to have stopped transmission of dracunculiasis in 2006, having reported their last known indigenous cases in June, September, November and December 2006, respectively. Congratulations to these four countries for having met their goals established by ministers of health at the 2004 World Health Assembly (see last page). Details of the final cases in Ethiopia and Cote d’Ivoire were reported in Guinea Worm Wrap-Up #177.
