  • Description:
    Countries outside of Sudan reduce cases by 30% so far in 2002

    The monthly reduction in cases of dracunculiasis in all endemic countries outside of Sudan in January-May 2002 are illustrated in Figure 1. The cumulative rate of reduction through May this year (including imported cases), compared to the same period of 2001, is –30%. In the first six months of 2001, cases were reduced by 39% compared to January- June 2000. If the current rate of reduction remains the same for the rest of 2002, less than 10,000 cases will be recorded outside of Sudan this year (vs. ~14,000 cases outside of Sudan in 2001). Ghana and Nigeria account for 82% of cases outside Sudan so far this year.
