    Nigeria establishes certification committee, 2006 target

    Nigeria's Guinea Worm Eradication Program (NIGEP) reported only one case of dracunculiasis in the entire country in August 2005, making a total of 116 cases reported in January-August this year: a reduction of -70% from the 395 cases reported during the same period of 2004. As of the end of August, the Northwest and Northeast Zones, which together comprise 12 of Nigeria's 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, had reported no indigenous case for 13 consecutive months (Figure 1). In view of this progress, the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Health recently established a National Committee on Certification for Guinea Worm Disease Eradication (NCC-GWDE).
