    SOUTH SUDAN REPORTS NO GUINEA WORMS IN 2017!!!

    As of December 31, 2017, South Sudan reached the major milestone of thirteen months since its most recent case of Guinea worm disease (GWD) was reported in November 2016. For the first time since it began in 2006, in 2017 the South Sudan Guinea Worm Eradication Program (SSGWEP) has provisionally reported zero cases in an entire calendar year (Figures 1 and 2) despite submitting 27 worm specimens to CDC, none of which were confirmed as Dracunculus medinensis. South Sudan’s latest case, a thirteen-year-old Lou girl from the village of Khor Jamus in Jur River County of Western Bahr al Ghazal State, had her worm emerge on November 20, 2016.
