From Vitthal Jadhav:

Re: Forgotten, but not gone: leprosy lives on in America (Nov. 9): I agree that most of the physicians are not aware of leprosy and need to be trained in the diagnosis and treatment of leprosy. Even in countries where Leprosy programmes are working we face problems with private doctors not being aware of Leprosy. We have reached stage of elimination and new cases are also going down. If in a country like USA new cases are detected even in migrants I feel awareness spreading for the Physicians is important.
