NLR is a global forerunner in the fight against leprosy
Our global ambition: a world free of leprosy by 2040
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.
Even today, leprosy causes disability and social exclusion. The disease affects millions of lives. The NLR Alliance developed three strategic programmes to work towards a leprosy-free world: Zero Transmission, Zero Disability, and Zero Exclusion
Everybody has the right to a dignified life and to achieve their full potential. Not just to survive, but to thrive. In 2021 we worked towards zero leprosy by ‘Staying Connected’ with our donors, supporters, partners and persons affected by leprosy. Read our Annual Report 2021 – ‘Staying Connected’!
