  • Description:
    Sudan peace protocols opening door to final campaign; dracunculiasis cases declining rapidly.

    Seven days after ministers of health of the last 12 endemic countries and their partners signed the Geneva Declaration on May 19, pledging to complete the eradication of dracunculiasis within five years, momentum towards that goal received another big boost with the signings of the last remaining protocols needed to form the basis for a final comprehensive Peace Agreement between the two sides in Sudan’s 21 year-old civil war. If, as expected, the peace protocols signed on May 26 and the previously agreed protocols lead to a final Peace Agreement in August, Sudan’s Guinea Worm Eradication Program (SGWEP) should be able to start accessing the last strongholds of Guinea worm disease in southern Sudan during the next dry season, beginning in November 2004.
