Republic of Angola アンゴラ共和国


Angola achieved the elimination of leprosy as a public health problem (defined by the WHO as a prevalence rate of less than 1 case per 10,000 people) at the end of 2005. Seen here are patients are being examined for leprosy in 2003 at a hospital in Camakupa, Bie Province, which saw some of the fiercest fighting in Angola's civil war, and a leprosy community center called Funda on the outskirts of the capital, Luanda, photographed in 2006.
