NGO Profile :
Association for Leprosy Education, Rehabilitation and Treatment (ALERT - India) was registered in 1978 and operates out of Mumbai to improve scientific knowledge, sustainability and guiding principles regarding national leprosy control efforts. The organisation establishes leprosy control activities in poor communities and works to secure the rights of people affected by leprosy.

Some of their activities are as follows:

  • Create Awareness: ALERT India conducts regular exhibitions, presentations, and awareness campaigns to dispel misconceptions concerning leprosy. Special education programmes are organised for students and teachers who can spread scientific facts about leprosy.
  • Detection: They organise special drives to detect new leprosy cases in the community – in the N, S, and T wards of Mumbai, as well many villages around Navi Mumbai. Partner organisations help with this throughout Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh states.
  • Treatment: Patients are provided with treatment, counselling, medication, and physiotherapy services free of cost in clinics.
  • Deformity Control: They provide muscle stimulation, pre-fabricated splints, special micro cellular rubber footwear, and other aids at concessional rates to patients with various types of deformities.
  • Rehabilitation: They run a special sponsorship programme to help educate children affected by leprosy and children of leprosy patients in order to find a place in their families and also the community.
  • Training: The organisation provides training and conducts workshops for doctors, nurses and paramedical personnel on the diagnosis and treatment of leprosy.
  • Study and Research: The Central Registry and Epidemiological Monitoring Unit documents activities and monitors epidemiological indicators. Studies are conducted to assess the impact of interventions from ALERT India and other partners. 
  • Leprosy Elimination Action Programme (LEAP) Publications: The basic purpose of these publications is to strengthen integration by empowering GHC (General Health Care) personnel to treat and manage leprosy on par with other diseases. ALERT India has also produced various Information Education and Communication (IEC) materials for Leprosy and TB awareness in the form of films, leaflets, flip charts (albums), posters, stickers, booklets and exhibitions.
