- About this Site
At a Guinea worm case containment center in Abuyong, South Sudan, six-year-old Thom Mayom assists nurse John Lotiki as Lotiki tends to Mayom's badly infected Guinea worm wound. Harboring the vast majority of the world's remaining cases, South Sudan has become the last frontier on the difficult path to eradicating this debilitating parasitic disease.
