  • Description:
    The annual Program Review for endemic francophone countries convened on October 28 – 30 at the Monotel Hotel in Nouakchott, Mauritania. Participants included representatives from Benin, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Togo. This Program Review was hosted by the Ministry of Health of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, organized by The Carter Center, and co-sponsored by the Government of Mauritania, The Carter Center, the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF. WHO also organized a parallel meeting for data managers from the same programs. In summary, the Review revealed that the Guinea Worm Eradication Programs in Niger, Burkina Faso and Mauritania are doing well, those in Mali, Togo, Benin and Cote d’Ivoire are experiencing problems, and the status of dracunculiasis in Central African Republic is still uncertain.
