introduction of the study to the scope and limitation of the research. Chapter
two will be reviewing relevant literatures on the roles of radio and
interpersonal communication in the eradication of guinea worm. Chapter three
will deal on the methodology and strategies that will be used in the collection
of data for the research, then this data that has been collected will be
