To reach a World free of Leprosy
% of funds sent to our projects to date THANKS TO OUR DONORS
Our strategy aims to achieve three goals
A major challenge for the leprosy world is that the number of new cases of leprosy per year has hardly changed over the past decade. Early detection and treatment projects work toward this goal.
Leprosy has impaired up to 6 million people alive today. Untreated leprosy cause muscle weakness and attacks the nerve. Reconstructive surgery and prevention of disabilities projects work toward this goal.
Negative community attitudes can be the most troubling and the most disabling consequences of leprosy. There is no justification for this prejudice. Advocacy and human rights projects work toward this goal.
