Summary
This program profiles an initiative launched in the early 1980s by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, the World Health Organization (WHO), and others. The objective was the eradication of guinea worm in the regions where it was still endemic -- parts of India and Pakistan and 17 countries in Africa -- using as a model WHO's successful smallpox eradication campaign.
