The UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, plans to relocate 20,000 refugees to safer areas in South Sudan, following an increase in violence on its border with Sudan.
The refugees, who have fled fighting in Sudan’s South Kordofan and Blue Nile states, are camped around Yida town, which came under attack from Sudanese warplanes earlier this month.
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.
