Atlanta — Le Carter Center, ainsi que ses partenaires, salue la poursuite des progrès enregistrés par la campagne d’éradication du ver de Guinée. En 2017, seulement 20 villages étaient atteints de cas de maladie du ver de Guinée, dans deux pays, tous les deux en Afrique, par rapport à 23 735 villages dans 21 pays sur deux continents en 1991. Entre les mois de janvier et décembre 2017, trente cas locaux de ver de Guinée ont été signalés dans des zones reculées du Tchad et de l’Éthiopie.

ATLANTA…..The Carter Center has launched a series of nongovernmental dialogues between prominent leaders from Sudan and South Sudan to strengthen peace and create lasting understanding between the two countries.
The Carter Center's peace programs have retained a presence in South Sudan after observing the 2011 referendum on independence in the hopes of contributing to a lasting peace and the establishment of strong democratic foundations. The country faces many challenges as it struggles to establish itself as the world's newest nation.
Following a series of public hearings, South Sudan's National Legislative Assembly (NLA) is in the final review stages of a national elections bill to establish the framework for political competition in future elections in South Sudan. Taking into account that passage of an elections bill is needed to move forward with by-elections for vacant legislative seats at the state and national level, The Carter Center encourages all stakeholders to continue to contribute to a thorough debate on the draft bill.
The Carter Center commends South Sudan's National Legislative Assembly for its decision to convene a public hearing on the draft Political Parties Bill and solicit input from political parties, civil society, and citizens. This is an important opportunity for South Sudanese to provide input and demonstrate citizens' interest in the political process. The Carter Center urges interested stakeholders to review the bill and participate in the public hearing, which will be held Feb. 9-10 in Juba.

The Carter Center calls on all stakeholders to work for a sustainable solution to the conflicts in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states. The popular consultations could facilitate a longterm settlement in both states if implemented in a credible way. However, this requires a security environment conducive to open dialogue and the inclusion of all stakeholders in the process.
