Excerpt
GHANA-. Since early 1954, the yaws control programme in Ghana has been based on mass treatment with a single injection of procaine penicillin G in oil with 2% aluminium monostearate (PAM). From 1956 to 1972 the campaign was carried out by mobile Medical Field Units (MFU) with the assistance of UNICEF and WHO. During this period the incidence of clinical yaws was reduced considerably except in the Central and Eastern Regions. After 1969, the reorganization of the MFU operations, logistics problems, and particularly following the introduction of cholera into the country in September 1970, the amount of time given to the yaws programme had to be reduced. The overall effect since 1970 has been a steady rise in the number of clinical cases of infectious yaws particularly in the Eastern, Central and Ashanti Regions. In the first quarter of 1974 a total of 12 707 cases were reported throughout the country. This was an increase of 35 % over the 9 432 cases in the same period in 1973 and 155 % of the 4 980 cases in the first quarter of 1972. The annual figures for 1971 through 1973 were 12 733, 22 199 and 44 054 respectively (Table I ) .
