  2. THINK NOW ハンセン病(2014-2020年)

THINK LEPROSY NOW is an opportunity for as many people as possible to gain a greater understanding of leprosy and reflect on the stigma and discrimination still associated with this curable disease.

Leprosy is only mildly contagious, and medical advances have made it possible to completely cure the disease,
with no lasting physical impairment, if treated early.

Nevertheless, leprosy has been feared for centuries because of its disfiguring effects,
and stigma and discrimination against people affected by the disease remain firmly rooted.

To resolve this problem, we need to eliminate these misunderstandings
and instill a correct understanding of the disease among people around the world.
