    Burkina Faso reduces its cases by –54% so far this year

    As indicated in Figure 1, Burkina Faso has achieved a substantial reduction of –54% in the number of cases of dracunculiasis reported so far in 2002 (302), compared to the 659 cases reported during the first seven months of 2001. The districts of Gorom-Gorom, Gaoua, Batié, Kaya and Ziniaré together reported 60% of all the country’s cases in 2001, and are the focus of intensive efforts this year. Whereas the peak transmission season for the latter three districts is March-July, the peak season for Gorom-Gorom and Gaoua Districts is August-November. Gorom District borders Mali’s Ansongo District (Gao Region) and Niger’s Tera District (Tillabery Region), and Gaoua borders Cote d’Ivoire’s Bouna District, and Ghana’s Upper West Region.
