Mitha Ram Thapa, Leprosy Control Unit, Nepal Government

We are deeply appreciative of the contribution made by NLR Nepal in the elimination of leprosy as a public health problem in Nepal and preventing disabilities due to leprosy. NLR Nepal has been providing technical support to the Nepal Government through capacity building programs and consultations on publications including disability manuals, action plans, and strategy. It has further supported the government through Disability Relief and Rehabilitation program in post-earthquake setting and in the construction of a health post in Mirkot, Gorkha which was handed over to the Nepal Government.
