Where we work

We concentrate our efforts on 11 countries in Asia and Africa. The needs of individuals and communities affected by leprosy vary significantly between the nations in which we work.

We work closely with staff in these Asian and African countries to provide and evaluate a range of different projects. The projects help transform the lives of leprosy-affected people as well as working towards eradicating the causes of the disease.
