Strengthening Integrated Neglected Tropical Disease Control in Zamfara
This project aims to increase access to quality leprosy, lymphatic filariasis (LF) and disability services within an integrated health system for communities in Zamfara, Nigeria. The project worked closely with the Nigerian Government’s Department of Health to improve health services for people with leprosy and LF, train health workers, and increase access to health clinics at a local level.
The project also works with communities to become more inclusive by breaking the stigma of leprosy and disability. In addition, they help empower people with disabilities to develop good stable livelihoods and become active contributing members of their communities.
The Strengthening Integrated Neglected Tropical Disease Control in Zamfara project in Nigeria is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy, other neglected tropical diseases and disability in Nigeria.
