Abstract Share this page

Of the various ‘ancient diseases’, one of the longest lasting (and arguably notorious) is leprosy (leprosy was recognized in the ancient civilizations of China, Egypt and India). Notwithstanding its long history, the disease is one that should be relatively straightforward, with tangible political support, to eliminate as a global health concern. The current strategy being implemented by the World Health Organization (WHO) is discussed below. This paper also reviews some of the current research into leprosy, focused on the areas of diagnosis and treatment.
