  • Description:
    Nigeria reports zero cases in September!!!

    For the first time since the Nigerian Guinea Worm Eradication Program (NIGEP) began in 1988, Nigeria has detected zero cases of dracunculiasis (Guinea worm disease) throughout the entire country for a whole month: September 2004. This compares to 31 cases reported by NIGEP in September 2003, and 175 cases in September 2002 (see Figure 1). The news of Nigeria’s first zero-case month electrified the annual Review of Carter Center-assisted Health Programs in Nigeria, which was held October 11-13 at the Hill Station Hotel in Jos, Plateau State.
