NEGLECTED TROPICAL DISEASES like leprosy affect the poorest and most marginalized people in the world. They cause lifelong disabilities, increased poverty, isolation and profound suffering.
Since 1906, American Leprosy Missions has helped free people suffering from the pain and stigma of NTDs through medical treatment, training, disease mapping and management, community development and pioneering research.
We are committed to creating pathways to healing and hope, BREAKING BARRIERS that prevent afflicted people from living whole lives.
