Call for change... : Stand Up for People Affected by Leprosy.
"RESPECT THEIR RIGHTS... RESTORE THEIR DIGNITY"
An advocacy project of the Leprosy Mission Trust India to address the issues of legal and social discriminationof people affected by leprosy and their family members , at national level in Dehli and state level in the states of Chhattisgarth and Uttar Pradesh.
Unfortunately, the law of the land in India is discriminating against people affected by leprosy. The Challenging Anti-Leprosy Legislation (CALL) project was launched in 2012, with one of its aims being to overturn seven laws in India that discriminate against people affected by leprosy. These include leprosy being grounds for divorce.
