Rotary District 1130 Conference in Eastbourne, October 2021

We attended the Rotary District 1130 Conference, 15-17 October 2021, where we showcased our work to beat leprosy, how we raise awareness, organise early detection and treatment, reduce prejudice and support people affected by the disease. We are proud of our partnership with Rotary and how our joint commitment to tackling leprosy transforms many lives.

Our partnership with Rotary in India

Last year, with the Rotary Club of Delhi South in the lead, and together with the Rotary Clubs of Delhi South End, New Delhi and Regency Next, an alliance was formed with Lepra with the objective of developing a robust programme to control leprosy in India; the leprosy capital of the world.

With disease control being a core mandate for Rotary International since the organisation’s beginning, the Rotary clubs in India are primed to create awareness and social mobilisation to a great scale, through the abundance of volunteers who will passionately pursue the cause. Combine this with Lepra’s 97 years of experience diagnosing, treating and supporting people with leprosy, and we have created a very strong formula for combatting this disease.

Our first quarterly newsletter has been produced, showcasing our partnership and the Leprosy Control Programme we are poised to embark upon. Please read a copy here, and share with other members of your club.


Rotary, Lepra and COVID-19

In 2020, thanks to the support from Rotary Stratford London and Rotary Jubilee Hills Hyderabad, Lepra was able to augment further COVID-19 testing capabilities at their Blue Peter Health and Research Centre (BPHRC) in Hyderabad.

BPHRC is now a leading COVID-19 testing facility in Telangana State, India. Our next task is to be a key player in the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccination campaigns, to ensure that those people affected by leprosy and LF are not forgotten.
