Measles Rates vs. Vaccine Coverage

For many years, rates of measles (per 100,000 population) reported by the  WHO European and Americas Regions have been similar. During the same period, both regions have maintained high uptake of measles vaccine. [1,2] In the following graph, I’ve contrasted these figures with those of Africa, which continues to report both high measles rates and inadequate vaccine usage.
