  • Description:
    The Sudan GWEP continues to record significant advances against dracunculiasis, despite great difficulties and constraints, most of which result from the ongoing civil war. Table 1 below, summarizes the status of the program in three principal operational areas, i.e., the northern states, the southern states and in two of three southern states, i.e., Buheirat (Lakes) and West Equatoria States, where special emphasis on interventions against dracunculiasis has been possible during 2000-2001 (conditions in Upper Nile State have not allowed intensified interventions to be implemented).

    The northern states have reported 27 indigenous cases in January-August 2001, vs. 10 indigenous cases in the same period of 2000. Interventions in the northern states have improved since last year. Although the northern states have not yet interrupted indigenous transmission of dracunculiasis, another of those states (Khartoum) has now had no indigenous cases for two consecutive years. This leaves seven endemic northern states (S. Darfur, S. Kordofan, W. Kordofan, Sennar, White Nile, Blue Nile, N. Darfur, two of which (N. Darfur, White Nile) have reported only imported cases so far in 2001.
