Specialized Services for People with Leprosy…

Over 90% of people affected by leprosy live in developing countries where resources are scarce. In Nigeria, leprosy risks becoming a forgotten problem amongst higher profile social problems. Due to the efforts of several countries in making free treatment for leprosy available the disease has almost been eradicated with only some 4000 people getting leprosy each year. Unfortunately (ex)patients and their families still suffer from stigmatization and the effects can linger for several generations. We offer both treatment and rehabilitation services. Moreover, those who had treatment too late are often in need of special aid to improve their livelihoods.
