Organisatie | Organisation

NLR (until No Leprosy Remains), in the Netherlands better known as Leprastichting, wants to end the age-old disease leprosy once and for all. Still every year 200.000 new leprosy patients are diagnosed worldwide and millions of people live with the serious consequences of leprosy; impairments, discrimination and exclusion. Unnecessary, because timely detection and treatment can prevent further infection. NLR is an international NGO that aims for a world without leprosy and its consequences. About 40 people work in our international office in Amsterdam and 200 total globally.

Leprastichting currently has five offices in the regions where leprosy occurs most. These offices are in transition to become NGOs with national accountability and in the future they will work together as NGOs in an alliance. The organisation is working towards their vision and mission: zero leprosy, to be achieved by 2040.
