Dear Pieter,

Could you share our comment published on The Lancet Infectious Diseases with the leprosy mailing list participants? We discussed the last leprosy numbers made available by WHO on 2017. Are leprosy case numbers truly reliable?






Note editor: I would like to refer to an editorial in Leprosy Review by P.E.M. Fine "Global Leprosy Statistics: a cause of pride, or frustration?" Lepr Rev (2006) 77,295-297
