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.

fig4: Cumulative number of yaws cases by subnational regions in the WHO southeast Asia and western Pacific regions

Mentions: Figure 4 shows the cumulative number of yaws cases in the WHO western Pacific and southeast Asia regions within the 4-year period, shown by subnational region. In Papua New Guinea, five provinces were very highly endemic (>5000 cases)—New Ireland, West New Britain, East New Britain, Madang, and Autonomous Region of Bougainville provinces—whereas seven provinces were highly endemic (1000–4999 cases). The Western province in Solomon Islands, and Tafea province in Vanuatu were also very highly endemic. In Indonesia, most cases were found in the province of Nusa Tenggara Timur, where 13 084 cases were reported during the 4-year period. No recent surveillance data have been reported from Timor-Leste, but the country is regarded as endemic according to WHO.
