Abstract:WHO has recently proposed a 5-year strategy plan for leprosy control beginning from 2006 to 2010. Even though currently there are still nine countries which have yet to achieve the goal of eliminating leprosy, it is considered to be accomplished in the near future. It is expected that the number of newly detected cases are expected to decline in the future by early detection, accurate diagnosis, early treatment, preventing disabilities and by further continuing the leprosy control activities.
