Championing a cause long-forgotten

The Leprosy Mission Trust India (TLMTI) has so far developed over 420 Champions (persons affected by leprosy) from across the country. They are in the forefront in the fight against leprosy. They are a ‘movement’ – a movement to eradicate leprosy from India (which has 60% of the global leprosy caseload), end leprosy stigma, promote social inclusion of people affected by leprosy, and get laws discriminating against people affected by leprosy repealed (there are 119 such laws).

National meet: #ChampionsForZeroLeprosy

The Leprosy Mission Trust India (TLMTI), over the last few years, developed over 240 Champions (persons affected by leprosy) who have overcome the challenges of leprosy to champion the cause of people affected by leprosy, from across the country. TLMTI, through its CREATE project, organised a 2-day national meet of the Champions in New Delhi, from November 27-28, 2018.
