For the last 146 years, three Ps have defined the existence of The Leprosy Mission Trust India (TLMTI) – people, purpose, and passion. People give purpose, purpose unites and guides, and passion guides! With this theme, we are pleased to present to you The Leprosy Mission Trust India’s Annual Report for 2019, which reflects the progress we’ve made.
In the early 1990s, a dream was born in The Leprosy Mission Trust India – to do frontline research to find answers to the questions relating to leprosy which remains unanswered and poses barriers to eradication of the disease. And this dream saw its realisation when Stanley Browne Research Laboratory (SBL) was founded in 1994.
This year, SBL completed 25 years, and to commemorate the occasion, the Lab organised a one-day research symposium, ‘SBL: Frontline Research on Leprosy Elimination’, at India Habitat Centre, New Delhi, on May 10. The symposium was organised with the purpose of bringing attention to the urgent need for leprosy research.
The Leprosy Mission Trust India’s (TLMTI) College on Wheels project conducted an awareness programme on leprosy, gender and human rights in Kacholi village in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh on April 10. Over 190 people took part in the programme.
Identifying the best way of doing something (best practices) and sharing them is critical to continuous improvement. This helps bring everyone up to their highest level of performance. And that’s what The Leprosy Mission Trust India’s (TLMTI) CREATE project, along with National Institute for Empowerment of Persons with Multiple Disabilities (NIEPMD) (http://www.niepmd.tn.nic.in/
), did in a 3-day national-level workshop for sharing best practices by DPOs (disabled peoples’ organisations).
