  • Description:
    During the second half of July, four review teams, including external reviewers Dr. Alhousseini Maiga of WHO and Mr. Harry Godfrey, consultant to Global 2000/The Carter Center, as well as local representatives of UNICEF and the Ministry of Health, visited 32 endemic localities in seven of the eight endemic regions of Mauritania. According to their preliminary report, “the review team was pleasantly surprised at the progress and quality of eradication efforts observed in the more highly endemic areas of the country . . . .” Monthly supervision, in particular, has been introduced in most of the highest endemic areas. The team also expressed its concern about the status of operations in the less endemic area of Tagant, but noted that Mauritania should be able to end transmission of dracunculiasis by the end of 1999. Mauritania reported 388 cases in 1997.
