After being diagnosed and successfully treated for leprosy, Jabala is determined to help others get the help they need as well. When she found out she had the disease, she was worried about being stigmatised by her community. But with the support of her family and the fact that her leprosy was cured early enough to leave no lasting effects, Jabala has become an advocate for swift diagnosis and treatment that will prevent disability.
Thanks to all she has learned about leprosy from the Aburoff Clinic, she's raising awareness about the disease among people she knows. If they have symptoms that could indicate leprosy, she advises them to go to the clinic. Jabala is now part of the fight against leprosy - a vital link in her community who is using her own experience to help others.
