There is a cure for leprosy, but no way to prevent it. Until a vaccine is developed, people will continue to be affected by this disease and its negative impacts.
Along with American Leprosy Missions, we are funding the development of a leprosy vaccine. The work takes place at the Infectious Disease Research Institute in Seattle, Washington. The vaccine will be ready for Phase I Clinical trials before the end of this year.
