EH ServiceDelivery DOMAIN Header

The journey to hope begins with restored physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Service delivery meets the needs of care for a person with leprosy and their community. Through this domain, lives are changed every day.

Service Delivery is about meeting the urgent need for cure, care and education today. Communities learn about the signs, symptoms and treatment of the disease to promote early detection and to reduce stigma.

Staff diagnose, treat, counsel, and offer education and tools for self-care and self-help to those affected, their families, and wider community.
