The Leprosy Mission

The Leprosy Mission is a global Christian organisation leading the fight against leprosy. " Following Jesus Christ, they seek to bring about transformation; breaking the chains of leprosy and empowering people to attain healing, dignity and life in all its fullness."

Every two minutes, someone is diagnosed with leprosy. Although it is curable, millions of people worldwide are living with the effects of the disease, from physical disability to mental health problems, poverty and discrimination.

The Leprosy Mission's goals are zero leprosy transmission, zero leprosy disability and zero leprosy discrimination. They work in four key areas to achieve this. Diagnosing and treating leprosy, caring for disabled people, pioneering research, fighting stigma and advocating for change.
