    On November 12, the Minister of Health of Togo, Dr. Sama Koffi, visited two endemic villages in the district of Zio, accompanied by his entire technical staff, including the national program coordinator, Mr. K. Ignace Amegbo. Also accompanying the minister were the country representatives of WHO and UNICEF, as well as representatives of U.S. Peace Corps and a consultant from Global 2000/The Carter Center. The minister and his entourage first visited the formerly endemic village of Tsito, which had not had any cases for the past three years. There, the minister congratulated the population of the village on their accomplishment, after having heard the traditional chief describe the history of dracunculiasis in his village and its eradication using only cloth filters and case containment.
