Leprosy & disability care in Khartoum

This project focuses on leprosy and disability care. It also supports other leprosy control activities including case finding, eye care, wound care, the provision of multidrug therapy and prevention of disability and impairment.  The Aburoff Clinic, Sudan's only specialist leprosy centre, and Khartoum Dermatology Hospital in Khartoum provide wound care and protective footwear to patients. Eight medical assistants have also been trained in basic leprosy awareness, sponsored by the World Health Organization.
