Where is lymphatic filariasis common?

Lymphatic filariasis affects over 120 million people in 73 countries throughout the tropics and sub-tropics of Asia, Africa, the Western Pacific, and parts of the Caribbean and South America.

Lymphatic filariasis is not fatal but it is responsible for considerable disability and distress, causing social stigma among men, women and children.
