WHO Goodwill Ambassador's Newsletter For The Elimination Of Leprosy

FROM THE EDITOR:‘MAKE MORE NOISE’

Interviewed during a visit to the secretariat of the new Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy, Dr. Ann Aerts of Novartis Foundation speaks of the need to “make much more noise” about leprosy.

Several items in this issue of the newsletter cover efforts to make more noise—from the Goodwill Ambassador’s recent forays into television and radio studios in Indonesia to talk about leprosy; to a report on a photo exhibition in New Delhi that aims to put a human face on the disease; and the account of an Indonesian journalist who covered the Goodwill Ambassador’s visit and is now passionate about sharing her new-found knowledge.

From individuals who have personally experienced the disease to organizations that are committed to ending it, there are people “making a noise” about leprosy to keep it on the health and human rights agenda and ensure that it is not forgotten. By working in concert, they can surely make their voices heard.
