世界のハンセン病の現状と将来の展望 Global Leprosy, Current Status and a Future Outlook
Successful "Leprosy Elimination Programme" since 1991 managed to reduce global case load to nearly 1/10 in 10 years. However, this rapid fall of case detection/incident rate. This means that even after year 2, 000, control effort of leprosy as an infectious disease must be sustained, while adequate control / care of leprosy as a deformity / disability causing disease need more attention.
