Enhanced global strategy for further reducing the disease burden due to leprosy: Operational guidelines (2011-2015)
The Enhanced Global Strategy for Further Reducing the Disease Burden due to Leprosy: 2011-2015 and the Updated Operational Guidelines were widely welcomed and endorsed. The overall goal is to provide access to quality leprosy services for all affected communities based on the principles of equity and social justice. These Updated Operational Guidelines seek to help managers of national health services to implement the Enhanced Global Strategy comprehensively in their own countries. This will be achieved by developing detailed national policies applicable to their own situation, and revise the National Manual for Leprosy Control in their respective countries.
