  • Crisis: It is estimated that in India, there are over 1 million people with visible deformities due to leprosy and around 750 'leprosy colonies' where over 200,000 people live marginalized lives. Even though leprosy can be completely cured, the disease is one of the world's most stigmatised diseases, and people affected by the disease are considered as social outcasts in many parts of the world and denied basic human rights, discriminated against, and forced to live sub-human lives.
  • Programs: TLMTI has a diverse set of programs - Healthcare, Sustainable Livelihood, Community Empowerment, Advocacy, and Research and Training. These programs are implemented through fourteen hospitals, six vocational training centres, 5 residential care homes for elderly persons affected by leprosy, eight community empowerment projects, and a research laboratory.
  • Outcome: In FY 2018-19, there were a total of 100,766 leprosy consultations of which 5,095 were new cases; 693,089 non-leprosy consultations for other specialities like dermatology, general medicine, surgery, ophthalmology etc. were done and 3,000 cataract surgeries conducted. 534 young boys and girls were trained in vocational training centres and 965 people trained through community-based program, 84 new SHGs were formed and 290,015 marginalized women were supported through empowerment initiatives.
