Director, Leprosy Relief Canada
In programs Leprosy Relief Canada funds, we emphasize increasing early diagnosis, especially in cases involving children.
Leprosy Relief Canada strongly believes in the necessity of the UN Principles and Guidelines for the elimination of discrimination against persons affected by leprosy and their family members. We support initiatives ensuring the full realization of all human rights for persons affected by leprosy.
This year, Leprosy Relief Canada is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Today, too many Canadians believe leprosy is a disease of the past. We need to change that perception.
