A method of rapid assessment of the distribution and endemicity of dracunculiasis in Nigeria
AbstractThis paper describes how information was collected at a national conference in Nigeria and a map compiled to give an initial assessment of the distribution and endemicity of dracunculiasis (guinea worm disease) throughout the country. The map provided a stimulus for further studies of the status of the disease and for the consideration of national control strategies. A map created along the same lines could be used for obtaining an initial assessment of the extent and endemicity of dracunculiasis, or other diseases, in countries for which such data was not readily available.
