Nepal Leprosy Trust (NLT) is a family of Christian organisations based in Nepal, Ireland and the UK. Our goal is to eradicate leprosy and its associated stigma so that people can lift their lives out of poverty and disadvantage and enjoy health, well-being and respect. We achieve this through medical treatment, social education and village development projects, targeting individuals, small groups and wider communities. The methods we use are admired and considered best practice internationally and our programme outcomes are statistically measurable. We have been working for more than 40 years in Nepal in partnership with the Nepal Government.
Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital & Services Centre in southern Nepal is one of the worlds busiest - 10,500 leprosy consultations, 73,955 total patients yearly.
