THE LEPROSY MISSION TRUST INDIA

The Leprosy Mission was founded in 1874 as ‘The Mission to Lepers’ by an Irishman named Wellesley Cosby Bailey, in Ambala, India. Subsequently in 1973, The Leprosy Mission Trust India (TLMTI) was registered as a Society under the Societies Registration Act of 1860. TLMTI is the largest leprosy-focused non-governmental organisation in India and is headquartered in New Delhi, India. The organisation works with people affected by leprosy and other neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), people with disabilities, and marginalised communities, especially women. TLMTI has a diverse set of programmes – Healthcare, Sustainable Livelihood, Community Empowerment, Advocacy, and Research and Training. These programmes are implemented through 14 hospitals and two clinics, six vocational training centres, five residential care homes for elderly persons affected by leprosy, community empowerment projects, and a research laboratory, spread across 10 states of India.

  • I have closely watched performance of The Leprosy Mission Trust India for nearly one decade. The contributions of TLMTI network hospitals and research establishment are highly significant. These are in terms of providing very good quality services with compassion to persons affected by leprosy, identifying gaps in the management practices and offering solutions, working closely with NLEP, and finally carrying out high quality leprosy research by competing for projects from Indian and international agencies. TLMTI has made deep impact on all counts. Lot more expectations in future.
