The disease kills an estimated 1.8 million people globally every year, with six countries accounting for almost two-thirds of the cases: India, Indonesia, China, Nigeria, Pakistan and South Africa.

Seven countries account for 64% of the total, with India leading the count, followed by Indonesia, China, Philippines, Pakistan, Nigeria, and South Africa.
