What We Do
The Leprosy Mission’s hospitals are centres of excellence that provide an exceptional level of care to leprosy patients as well as meeting the general medical needs of their surrounding communities.
Leprosy is a disease that can cause serious complications, all of which require medical treatment. Through our network of hospitals, clinics, mobile clinics, and orthopaedic workshops, we offer the support that people need to lead healthy, happy lives of dignity and respect.
Through our healthcare centres we provide reconstructive surgeries, physiotherapy, assistive devices, treatment of ulcers and leprosy reaction, and counselling. Through these services we are able to address all of the medical needs that a person affected might face because of the disease.
Your Hospitals and Clinics
Hospitals and clinics in India and Nepal provide lifesaving, transformative treatment, and care to marginalised groups around the world.
We empower patients to independently care for their own wounds and ulcers to prevent damage and disability.
Our Healthcare Projects
Leprosy Friendly Village Desaku
Villages are important places for people to have community and a sense of belonging. Unfortunately, due to misinformation and a lack of understanding, patients with leprosy are marginalised, feared and discriminated against, even by the health workers who are suppose to be treating them.
Improved Leprosy Services
The Improved Leprosy Services (ILS) Project in Timor-Leste, will keep up the work of the Better Health project (which concluded in 2019) in three districts, and expand to a fourth – Manatuto – which has seen a worrying trend of emerging leprosy cases recently.
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.
Urban Leprosy, Kotaku
The urban population, particularly around the capital city of Jakarta is rapidly expanding with rural migration, as people come to the city in search of work. With the high cost of living in cities, many people end up living in urban slums, where there is inadequate housing, poor sanitation, poor hygiene and crowded living environments. These conditions increase the risk of leprosy transmission.
Nepal Self Care Unit- Nepal
You can give people affected by leprosy and disability Nepal healing, hope and the help they desperately need to lead a healthier and fulfilling future. By making a donation to the Anandaban Self Care Unit in Nepal, you’ll be making a real difference — giving people affected by leprosy help to prevent or assist them with their disabilities and restore them to their families and communities.
