Mahatma Gandhi worked tirelessly to help those afflicted with leprosy. World Leprosy Day is celebrated on the last Sunday in January each year to coincide with his death on 30 January 1948. The goal for World Leprosy Day is to raise the awareness of a disease that many people believe has been eliminated.
