Measles: Still A Problem Despite Four Decades of Progress

November 25th, 2014

Although measles rates have declined dramatically during the past four decades, a recent upsurge reflects sub-optimal enforcement of vaccination in many countries. In the following graphs, I’ve summarized reported measles incidence and estimated vaccine uptake by region. Note that vaccination rates remain below 80% in three W.H.O. regions (African, Eastern Mediterranean and Southeast Asian), while they exceed 90% in the other three (European, American and Western Pacific) [1.2]
