Report of the global meeting of national leprosy programme managers: report of the meeting, New Delhi, India, 23-25 Nov 2015
AbstractThe global meeting of national leprosy programme managers was part of a consultation process organized by WHO's Global Leprosy Programme (GLP) to review the current leprosy situation and discuss new technology and knowledge available to address the leprosy problem worldwide in order to finalize the Global Leprosy Strategy, 2016-2020. Representatives of 45 national leprosy and experts in relevant fields participated in the deliberations. The meeting participants agreed on the Global Leprosy Strategy 2016-2020 'Accelerating towards a leprosy-free world". The strategy is built on three pillars: (i) strengthen government ownership, coodination and partnerships; (ii) stop leprosy and its complications; and (iii) stop disrimination and promote inclusion. The strategy will work towards the targets of zero grade 2 disabilities due to leprosy in children and bringing down grade 2 disability cases to <1 case per 1 milion population by 2020. WHO will facilitate national programmes, develop country implementation plans and support effective monitoring for achieving the desired targets.
