Romania has seen no new cases of leprosy in recent years, but in the east of the country, about 5 hours' drive from the capital Bucharest, is the country's only leprosarium in Tichilesti. The current hospital dates back to 1928, when there were some 180 patients, 47 residences for patients and even a cinema. In 2014, when these photographs were taken, there were 16 residents, ranging in age from 48 to 86.
