Global leprosy situation (2009)


Although significant progress has been made in controlling leprosy and reducing the burden of the disease, much remains to be done in order to sustain the gains made and further reduce the disease burden. Early casefinding and prompt treatment with MDT remain the cornerstone of leprosy control programmes, which needs to be ensured by strengthening integration with general health services and with critical support from the referral network.

Collaboration with partners and community-based rehabilitation activities will be introduced
where possible for people affected by leprosy and their families. These efforts are expected to reduce the physical, mental and socioeconomic burden caused by the disease.
