    South Sudan: 5 consecutive months without cases!!!!!

    South Sudan’s Guinea Worm Eradication Program (SSGWEP) continues its impressive march towards interrupting transmission of Guinea worm disease (GWD), reporting 70 cases from 37 villages in 4 counties in 2014, including only 12 villages with indigenous cases. This is a reduction of 38% from the 113 cases reported from 39 villages in 9 counties in 2013. Moreover, the program has reported zero cases for five consecutive months, November 2014-March 2015 (Figure 1, Table 10).
