Q. What region in the is more world affected by HD than the rest of the world? Kimberly
A. Hi Kimberly,
Thank you for your interesting question.
HD is a global disease that affects people everywhere. There tends to be more cases in the Western world (Europe and North America) than places such as Africa and Asia. But the place with the biggest number of HD cases is in a particular area of Venezuela in South America. There are several villages around Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela, where HD is extremely common.
I hope this answer helps! Thank you for emailing your question to HDYO.
