    According to provisional figures received so far for 2000, Sudan has reported 73% of all cases of dracunculiasis for the year (Figure 1, Table 1). Of the provisional total of 51,515 cases reported from Sudan through November, only 90 were reported from northern states (map, state line-listing) (99% reporting rate) and 49 of those were imported by displaced persons from endemic areas in the southern states. 80% of the 90 cases in northern states were contained. Of the 33 villages that reported a case so far in 2000 (indigenous or imported), only 5 villages reported more than 1 indigenous case, including the village of Al Mazmoum West in Sinnar State, which reported 17 indigenous cases (14 contained). All households in that village have received cloth filters, it has 4 safe sources of drinking water, Abate was applied in at least 6 months of 2000 (through October) and the village has received appropriate health education. All of the 33 villages that reported a case in the northern states have received health education, 61% (20) have cloth filters in every household, 64% (21) have at least one source of safe water, and Abate has been used in 45% (15).
