The PEP4LEP project – ’Chemoprophylaxis for leprosy: comparing the effectiveness and feasibility of a skin camp intervention to a health centre-based intervention’ – is an implementation trial that aims to identify the most effective and feasible method of screening people at risk of developing leprosy and administering preventive medication in Ethiopia, Mozambique and Tanzania. This project compares two interventions (a skin camp intervention and a health centre intervention) for screening contacts of leprosy patients. Both interventions include an integrated skin screening approach: screening takes place by looking for both common skin diseases as well as neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) manifesting with skin lesions, such as leprosy.
The intern will assist in project management, data collection and data analysis as part of a broader cost-effectiveness study, comparing the two intervention types to identify the most cost-effective strategy in terms of preventing leprosy.
We welcome applications from people of all genders, all ethnic and religious groups and those with disabilities and/or affected by an NTD/skin disease.
