Favus? Framboesia? Yaws?

For immigration to Botswana, we need to be medically examined and have a doctor certify that we are "not suffering from favus, framboesia or yaws, leprosy, scabies, syphilis, trachoma, tuberculosis or any other disease prescribed in terms of section 7 (c,) of the Immigration Act."

I had to look several of these things up. To the left, you see yaws. Yaws is related to framboesia. Below that is favus.
