Abstract Dracunculiasis is a preventable parasitic disease that for many years has affected poor communities without a safe portable water supply. Transmission is basically limited among the nomadic in remote rural settings. Most countries, including Asia, are declared free from the Guinea worm disease restraining the burden of transmission to Africa especially Sudan, Ghana, Mali, Nigeria and Niger. This review focuses mainly on the progress made so far by the Global Guinea Worm Eradication Programme championed by the Carter Center, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organisation, The United Nations Children's Fund and the individual efforts of endemic nations through their National Guinea Worm Eradication Programme aimed towards total global Guinea worm eradication.
