Measles is the third vaccine-preventable infectious disease (after smallpox and polio) that the World Health Organization (WHO) aims to eradicate. Due to its high morbidity and mortality, measles is one of six diseases that were included in the 1974 Extended Immunization Program. In this study, we evaluated the epidemiology of Measles in Europe and Turkey, and then we analyzed Measles incidence in Turkey between 1960 and 2016 with Regression Analysis.
