Our history dates back to 1925, when the British Empire Leprosy Relief Association (BELRA) started leprosy work in India. LEPRA was established in Hyderabad in 1989, as a partner of Lepra UK, to serve the needs of people affected by leprosy. LEPRA focused specifically on supporting the government of India’s National Leprosy Eradication Programme (NLEP) in Hyderabad. Leprosy control activities were carried out according to a Survey, Education and Treatment (SET) strategy in which identifying all patients living in an area, by means of case finding methods like mass, contact and school surveys, and treating them with multi-drug therapy (MDT) was the prime objective.
