The Guinea-worm disease is on the verge of eradication, but progress is being slowed down by lack of funding, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Fewer than 1,800 cases of the disease were reported last year compared to an estimated 3.5 million cases in the mid 1980s.

WHO says the disease is still endemic in four African countries including South Sudan, Mali, Chad and Ethiopia.

Guinea-worm disease is a crippling parasitic disease which is transmitted through drinking contaminated water.
