Description

When The Carter Center launched a coalition to eradicate Guinea worm disease in 1986, there were 3.5 million cases. In 2009, there were fewer than 3,190. Most of the remaining cases are in Southern Sudan, where the Center works in partnership with the Southern Sudan Guinea Worm Eradication program to bring health education and treatment to people scattered across a vast, unforgiving landscape. Journey to the field with health workers on the last frontier for this horrible human plague.
