Despite being officially declared leprosy free in 2010, more than 3,000 new cases are diagnosed in Nepal every year – the vast majority from poorer, more remote rural communities. While there has been significant progress in the treatment and rehabilitation of people with leprosy, disability and stigma associated with the condition still scars too many lives.
The webinar will examine what leprosy is, why INF Nepal has been at the forefront of leprosy care and treatment since its founding in 1952 and how we can support social movements that raise awareness, combat stigma and discrimination, and encourage governments and communities to act together to end leprosy.
