  • Description:
    Sudan’s share of global dracunculiasis cases increases in 2001

    During 2001 dracunculiasis cases continued to be eliminated in more areas of West Africa, Ethiopia and Uganda. Sudan accounted for 80% of all cases, reported during January -October (provisional data) (Figures 1, 2, and table 2). This is the highest proportion of global cases Sudan has ever reported, following percentages of 57%, 63%, 67%, and 73% in 1997-2000, respectively. The northern states of Sudan did not break transmission or reduce the numbers of indigenous cases occurring there during 2001 (Figures 3,4). However, northern Sudan and neighboring countries continue to receive cases exported from the highly endemic southern part of the country because of persons displaced by the civil war (Table 1).
