Infolep and InfoNTD are online platforms that provide access to information, publications and tools on leprosy and cross-cutting issues in neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), such as prevention, disability, inclusion, stigma and mental wellbeing, mHealth and WASH. It is essential for health professionals and researchers in the NTD field to cooperate and share knowledge. The urgent need for an up-to-date and centralised information platform led to the set-up of Infolep and InfoNTD. Visitors of the platforms are mostly scientists, programme managers, policy advisors, health professionals and students. The platforms are promoted through social media and international meetings and financially supported by NGO partners from the leprosy and neglected tropical diseases sector.
Infolep and InfoNTD are managed by NLR and housed in the NLR International Office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

NLR wants to end the age-old disease of leprosy once and for all. Still every year 200.000 new leprosy patients are diagnosed worldwide and millions of people live with the serious consequences of leprosy due to discrimination and exclusion. This is unnecessary, because timely detection and treatment can prevent further infection. NLR is an international NGO that aims for a world without leprosy and its consequences. In our strategy we focus on Zero Transmission, Zero Disability and Zero Exclusion.
NLR is a strong believer in collaboration. NGOs with the same mission in Brazil, Indonesia, India, Nepal and Mozambique are part of the NLR Alliance and are supported by our international office based in Amsterdam. As an active partner in international networks such as the Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy and the International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Associations (ILEP), together we make a significant impact towards our mission. NLR is a global forerunner in conducting and promoting leprosy research and driving evidence-based innovation.
About 40 people work in our international office in Amsterdam and 200 total globally. NLR, in the Netherlands better known as Leprastichting, is an ANBI with CBF recognition and is supported by 45,000 donors and leading institutional donors including the Nationale Postcode Loterij.
