"I am determined to outlive the last Guinea Worm" December 26, 2010 3:20 PM Subscribe
Followupfilter to this 2004 post about Guinea Worm disease, which mentioned the campaign of Georgia's best ex-governor and his foundation to eradicate it. They're almost there. Not that JC and friends are the only players, but they've certainly been major ones. "The few remaining cases exist in off-the-map places. In many sites, the Carter Center is the only outside presence — no other international or Sudanese organizations have set up shop. Even a government presence is rare." Yet another reason, if you needed another, to hope the Southern Sudan independence referendum (^) on Jan. 9 goes down without violence and does have the effect of preventing more north-south warfare in Sudan.
