WHO Goodwill Ambassador's Newsletter For The Elimination Of Leprosy

MEET THE MAIN ACTORS

The Conclusions and Recommendations state: “Persons affected by Hansen’s disease must be seen as the main actors in the fight against this disease and the discrimination it causes. This involvement is a powerful instrument for the recognition of their equal dignity and rights for social inclusion, and for the breaking of the stigma attached to them.” Pictured here are 12 who made their voices heard at the Vatican. (Left to right): Dr. P.K. Gopal (India), Jose Ramirez, Jr. (USA), Vagavathali Narsappa (India), Maya Ranaware (India), Paulus Manek (Indonesia), Valdenora da Cruz Rodriguez (Brazil), Du Chaoming (China), Kang Seonbong (South Korea), Kofi Nyarko (Ghana), Masao Ishida (Japan), Seminiawa Bawik (Philippines), and Maria Eloisa Castro (Colombia).
