Egypt 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) in 1994. But people affected by leprosy and their families still encounter deep-rooted stigma, while for those who live in the country's leprosariums, returning to society is said to be difficult.
