Mozambique 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 2007. Nampula Province in the north of the country is an area of high endemicity. These photos were taken in 2006 when a health post worker was distributing MDT.
