Lepra is an international charity working in Bangladesh, India and Mozambique to fight disease, poverty and prejudice. We make sure that people affected by neglected diseases can have access to good healthcare and we support them to improve their lives and livelihoods. Every year we change the lives of more than two million people, either directly through healthcare or indirectly through our health education programmes. Each quarter, we publish Leprosy Review, the only printed English language journal on leprosy. (See also LEPRA Society - leprasociety.org)
