New Delhi: The World Health Organisation (WHO) Wednesday said that though the fight against leprosy has made great progress in the last two decades, complacency may now threaten the last push towards freeing the world of the disease.The development of multi-drug therapy in the 1980s effectively cured 16 million people in the past 20 years. But in many countries where the disease is endemic, new case-detection rates have been either static or showing increases, WHO warned on the opening day of an international leprosy summit held in Bangkok.
