Global Medline search have been done on yaws and its eradication since 1950 onwards through meshwork. In this research, reference journals and textbook materials were selectively chosen for detailed clinical characteristics. As the disease has not been common in Bangladesh, expert opinion was lacking. More precise concentration was done over eradication theme. Review target was to elicit questions on readers mind and how to achieve the target with many restrains of eradication of yaws.


Key words: Yaws, Treponema pallidum, eradication.
