  • Leprosy is a disfiguring chronic infectious disease.
  • Spread via nasal droplets.
  • Affects the skin, nerves, hands, feet, and face.
  • (Symptoms – with pictures -> like WLD_4 & WLD_9)
  • New cases still occur with over 200,000 people diagnosed each year globally.

  • Let’s join hands for a leprosy-free world & break the myth against the social stigma.
