Bottom Line: Prevalence of active disease ranged from 0·31% to 14·54% in yaws-endemic areas, and prevalence of latent yaws ranged from 2·45% to 31·05%.We estimated that, in 2012, over 89 million people were living in yaws-endemic districts.None.

fig3: Cumulative number of yaws cases by subnational regions in the WHO Africa region

Mentions: Figure 3 shows the cumulative number of yaws cases from 2010 to 2013 in the WHO Africa region, shown by subnational regions. Six subnational regions in Ghana were very highly endemic (ie, >5000 cases within the 4-year reporting period), including the Eastern, Central, Volta, Western, Ashanti, and Brong-Ahafo regions. In Côte d'Ivoire, the regions of Fromager, Sud-Bandama, Haut-Sassandra, and Bas-Sassandra were highly endemic (ie, 1000–4999 cases within the 4-year reporting period). The East region in Cameroon, Likouala department in the Republic of Congo, and Lobaye prefecture in Central African Republic, which are close to one another, were all moderately endemic (ie, 100–999 cases within the 4-year reporting period). Data from Central African Republic were limited to surveys in two regions and the situation of the rest of the country remains to be investigated.
