  • Description:
    The Vice-President of Ghana, Prof. John Atta Mills, opened the first in-country national Program Review of the Ghana GWEP at the International Conference Center in Accra on September 28. In his remarks to the opening session of the two-day conference, the Vice-President urged the district assemblies to support the final push to complete the eradication of dracunculiasis from Ghana by the end of 1999. As a tangible manifestation of the new national resolve, all ten regional ministers, eight of whom attended the conference, as well as representatives of the Office of the President, the Minister of Health, Ghana Water and Sewerage Corporation, and the Community Water and Sanitation Department signed a AResolution to Stop Guinea Worm Transmission by December 31, 1999". The text of this unprecedented Resolution is reproduced elsewhere in this issue, as are the Recommendations developed during the Program Review. This Review was the first time that such high level political and medical authorities from all over the country had met to jointly plan and discuss the Guinea Worm Eradication Program.
