ILEP is a consortium of international non-governmental organizations with a shared desire to see a world free from leprosy, and an acknowledgment that none of us can achieve this on our own. The consortium spans more than 60 countries and 700 project locations worldwide. In the fight against leprosy, ILEP and its members work with people affected by leprosy, ministries of health and other government departments, WHO and other NGOs and civil society organizations. The News & Events page has latest news, guides, and upcoming events on conferences, meetings, and summits. You can sign up for the ILEP updates, a bulletin of leprosy-related news, developments and events of interest to ILEP members, staff and partners.
