Leprosy: Alarm bells ringing in Kerala!

We had put up a post about leprosy re-emerging in Kerala, on our Facebook page . The post talks about Kerala Government’s Aswamedham Leprosy Case Detection Campaign in eight districts of the state, namely, Ernakulam, Thiruvananthapuram, Thrissur, Palakkad, Malappuram, Kozhikode, Kannur, and Kasargod districts to detect hidden cases of leprosy, as it was found leprosy was on the rise in the state – Kerala has been a low endemic state for leprosy as the prevalence rate was low and detection of new cases very few in the last couple of years.
