until No Leprosy Remains

NLR is a global forerunner in the fight for a leprosy-free world

We take pride in enabling research and driving evidence-based innovation. Ongoing research on and implementation of preventive treatment provides hope that stopping leprosy transmission is coming within reach. It will take joint effort but we have the ambition to continue until No Leprosy Remains.

Three Zeros
