Country strategies


To be effective, ILEP as a Federation of organisations with a common vision of a leprosy-free world requires:

  • Effective ways of ensuring collaboration internationally and within countries
  • Clear mechanisms to align core activities at country level with global efforts
  • Commitment to core indicators that will meaningfully track our progress in this effort.

The ILEP country strategy is a tool to help guide this process. It provides a framework to help identify and develop appropriate, locally agreed plans, which will ensure that we can optimally contribute towards national strategies, and ultimately the ILEP international strategy and the WHO global strategy.

ILEP country strategies are shared with the governments’ National Plans and the ILEP secretariat office. They are designed to be reviewed each year.
