Leprosy is curable.

No child or adult should be excluded from family, community, school or workplace due to the disease.

If leprosy is identified and treated early enough, nobody should suffer disability from the disease. You will ensure those with leprosy will not suffer from nerve damage, loss of hands and feet, and loss of independence due to leprosy.

Indonesia has the third highest number of new leprosy cases in the world. This has not decreased in the last 16 years.

In 2017, 168 leprosy cases were found in Indramayu district. This means one case in every two villages. 10% of these cases are children.

The transmission of leprosy is still going on and there is a delay in case detection. No Leprosy Remains (NLR) Indonesia in partnership with Leprosy
Mission Australia are targeting to stop transmission in Indramayu.
