Dracunculiasis (also known as guinea-worm disease) is on the verge of eradication, with reported cases declining faster than ever.

Strong political commitment, prompt reporting, rapid investigation of suspected cases, effective case-containment and heightened surveillance activities have drastically reduced transmission.

WHO's target is to stop transmission of guinea-worm disease by 2015.
