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. A recent, major, breakthrough provides hope that stopping leprosy is coming within reach. It will take joint effort but we have the ambition to continue until No Leprosy Remains.

Three Zeros

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
