Anti-Leprosy Day

The day of Gandhi's martyrdom is also observed as Anti-Leprosy Day.Even in those days Gandhi nursed few leprosy patients shunned by the world at Sabarmati ashram.In the last six decades India has made a lot of progress towards achieving the goal of elimination of Leprosy.But much needs to be done in spreading awareness about the disease and changing the attitudes of people towards the affected.

Overcoming the stigma of Leprosy
