Our Work

Leprosy is a disease with complex physical, psychological, spiritual and societal effects on the individual. The Leprosy Mission aims to bring lasting change in people’s lives through a wide range of initiatives that work together towards its mission – following Jesus Christ, to break the chains of leprosy, empowering people to attain healing, dignity and life in all its fullness.


Where we work

We are a global network active in 34 countries across the world. We work hand-in-hand with governments, local communities, partner health organisations, the World Health Organization, local NGOs, local churches, Christian partners and many others to achieve our vision of leprosy defeated, lives transformed.
