NGO Profile :
LEPRA Society (LEPRA) works to restore health, hope and dignity for people affected by leprosy and other diseases linked to poverty, discrimination and disability. With its primary focus on leprosy, LEPRA has also initiated interventions in tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, Lymphatic Filariasis (LF), malaria, blindness and other health conditions exacerbated by stigma and social discrimination. Their vision is to ensure equitable access to health, and improved well-being of the marginalized communities. LEPRA Society works in nine states in India, directly reaching over two million people.

The Blue Peter Public Health and Research Centre, LEPRA’s Research Wing, undertakes clinical, laboratory and public health research and outreach work across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

Areas of work include:

  • Leprosy: LEPRA’s forte is its service delivery – right from early identification, diagnosis, treatment, to cure. It has pioneered the concept of the Referral Centre which offers specialized services for people with leprosy. With a range of holistic services from actual treatment which includes medication, aids and appliances, prevention of disabilities, surgery, physiotherapy, micro-cellular rubber footwear supply, and even counselling, these Centers are one-stop places. Besides the Disability Prevention and Medical Rehabilitation program, LEPRA is actively involved in advocacy efforts.
  • Tuberculosis: LEPRA plays a significant role in advocacy, communication and social mobilization, besides diagnosis, capacity building, and implementation of 14 Designated Microscopy Centers. LEPRA implements Axshya India Phase II TB project supported by the Global Fund, along with 16 partner NGOs in Madhya Pradesh and Odisha.
  • HIV/AIDS: The aim is to prevent, control, treat, care and support people affected with HIV, with focus being on high-risk population through targeted interventions including Injecting Drug Users projects and Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission.
  • Malaria: The project aims to reduce mortality and morbidity due to malaria and diarrhea. Activities include health camps, distribution of impregnated bed-nets, sensitization, and training of stakeholders.
  • Eye Care: LEPRA Mahanadi Eye Hospital currently covers over two million people and provides eye-care, particularly to treat persons affected with leprosy.
  • Lymphatic Filariasis: LEPRA adopts home-based and community-based approaches to address issues of people affected by LF. The self-care approach propagated by LEPRA has been successful in morbidity management.
