  • Description:
    The rate of increase in dogs infected with Guinea worms in Chad appears to finally be

    declining (Figure 1) in response to efforts to prevent new infections of dogs (bury fish

    entrails), contain infected dogs (tethering), and encourage reporting of dog infections

    (cash reward) that began in October 2013, February 2014, and February 2015,

    respectively. This downward trend has remained steady in 2016 despite inclusion of additional new

    villages with active surveillance (VAS) (encompassing 763 VAS during Jan-Jul 2015 vs 1,394 VAS

    currently).
