This year’s World Leprosy Day theme is ending discrimination, stigma, and prejudice. World Leprosy Day aims to raise awareness about the impact of discrimination, and social stigma has on people affected by leprosy, and how these negative attitudes hamper efforts to stop the spread of the disease. At present, Leprosy is an easily curable disease.
