Healing, Inclusion, Dignity Inaugural Forum: Delhi, 29th – 30th September 2014

Posted on 13/08/2014 by ILEP

People personally affected by leprosy, together with experts and active practitioners are to engage with the vital concerns of those living with leprosy, through sharing of experience, knowledge and a range of perspectives, at a Forum co-hosted by ILEP Member, The Leprosy Mission International and The Leprosy Mission Trust India. This exchange is expected to lead to a clear agenda for the future, not only for The Leprosy Mission, but also, it is hoped, for other partners and agencies who want to bring about positive change in the lives of some of the most marginalised people in the world.

The Gift of Pain - 100th Anniversary of Birth of Doctor who Revolutionised Treatment of Leprosy

Posted on 17/07/2014 by ILEP

An old man is rescuing a yam that has fallen off a stick by thrusting his hand straight into the red hot coals of a charcoal brazier. Hand surgeon Dr Paul Brand, watching this scene at a leprosy hospital in New Guinea realised that people affected by the disease have no warning system alerting them to pain. That insight transformed the treatment of leprosy and today, 17th July 2014 we celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth.

Posted on 01/07/2014 by ILEP

“The first step towards diagnosing leprosy is to think of the possibility of leprosy” wrote D L Leiker in the introductory paragraphs to the chapter on differential diagnosis in Leprosy, edited by Robert Hastings. In countries where leprosy is rare these days this is highly relevant, since leprosy presents with a broad range of symptoms that can be found in other conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, diabetic neuropathy or arthritis.
