By using synergies and adopting anti-stigma approaches in the fight against leprosy, the activities of FAIRMED has increasingly included tuberculosis, Buruli ulcer and other neglected tropical diseases. More and more FAIRMED has been targeting health problems of the poorest of the poor and marginalized people. The updated statutes of 2007 reflect the evolution in the field and broader scope of health interventions for the poorest and the most marginalised who have no access to health care. Leprosy and its consequences will remain a main focus until “a world without leprosy” has been achieved.
