Leprosy in the Western Pacific Region

Leprosy data for the Western Pacific Region indicate that disease incidence is highest in the Philippines, Vietnam and China. In the following graph, I have contrasted incidence and prevalence statistics for countries mentioned in the ProMED note, with population-adjusted rates for these same data. [1,2] Note that the numbers of cases per 100,000 population are highest in Micronesia, Kiribati and the Marshall Islands. See graph:
