    Francophone countries reduce cases by –58% in January-July

    Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, and Togo held their annual Program Review in Accra, Ghana on August 18-20, 2004. The National Program Coordinators of Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, and Togo’s Guinea Worm Eradication Programs also attended the semi-annual national Program Review for Ghana’s program, which was held in Accra on August 16-17 (see below). Reports presented at this review show that the francophone countries have reduced their reported indigenous cases of GWD by –62% (from 795 to 303 cases) between January-July 2003 and the same period of 2004. Considering only the villages where the programs intervened in 2003, they reduced GWD there by -82% so far this year (Table 1). The status of programs and interventions for these eight countries are summarized in Table 2.
