HARP (Hansen’s disease Antimicrobial Resistance Profiles) database, a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and American Leprosy Missions, is a tool to help scientists and doctors respond to drug-resistant leprosy. For the first time ever, HARP makes it possible to view all the protein mutations that could interfere with MDT treatment—that’s 80,902 mutations—in just a few seconds.
Ten Steps, developed by American Leprosy Missions, is a teaching guide addressing cross-cutting issues common to many NTDs and other health conditions. As basic care at the community level is strikingly similar across diseases, the Ten Steps health guide enables people affected, communities and health workers to identify and address common problems early, know when and where to refer, and understand how to monitor results. It encourages ownership and a person-centered, problem-based approach to learning.
This guide — sponsored by American Leprosy Missions and written by former staff member, Dr. Hugh Cross — was created for people treating wounds caused by leprosy. It helps readers understand the body’s response to tissue damage and describes simple treatments to help people affected by leprosy to heal from injuries.
